>> A decapitated torso found on Copenhagen's waterside is that of a missing Swedish journalist, Danish police say. Kim Wall disappeared on August 10th after setting sail with Danish inventor Peter Madsen in his homemade submarine. Police say that DNA testing on the body, found by a cyclist on Monday, has proved the identity.
Reuters' Stine Jacobson was at the press conference on Wednesday, where police said efforts also appear to have been made to sink the torso.>> After the DNA test, the police could also say that they found traces of Kim Wall's blood in the submarine. They also found on the dead torso, metal pieces attached, which the police suspects might have been used to weigh down the body.
Police also said that there have been made damages to the body to ensure that gasses could escape the torso and therefore, that it wouldn't float.>> They also said the body's limbs had been sawn from the torso. Police do not know the cause of death and divers are searching for additional body parts.
Madsen had first said that he had dropped Wall off alive in Copenhagen. Appearing in court he changed his version of events saying Wall's death was caused by an accident and he had buried her at sea. He was rescued a day after his UC3 Nautilus sank. Police have said there are indications the submarine was deliberately sunk.
Madsen faces a manslaughter charge, which he denies.
