Torso found in Denmark belongs to submarine journalist: policeBy Julie Astrid Thomsen and Teis Jensen COPENHAGEN (Reuters) – Police on Wednesday identified a headless female torso washed ashore in Copenhagen as that of Swedish journalist Kim Wall, who they believe was killed by a Danish inventor on board his home-made submarine. Wall, who was researching a story on inventor Peter Madsen, went missing after he took her out to sea in his 17-metre submarine on Aug. 10. Announcing the results of tests on the torso discovered by a passing cyclist on Monday, police spokesman Jens Moller said it had suffered damage suggesting “an attempt to make sure air and gas inside should leave the body so that it would not rise from the seabed”.
