Murder charge sought for submarine inventor after Kim Wall's headless torso found

Danish police are putting an additional charge of abuse of a corpse to the court investigating whether Danish inventor Peter Madsen killed Swedish reporter Kim Wall on board his submarine.

The 30-year-old had not been seen since she was spotted on a 60ft homemade submarine on 10 August with Danish inventor Peter Madsen, who built the sub Nautilus.

Her headless torso was found this week.

"There was also some metal attached to the body, allegedly also to make sure the body would sink to the bottom", he said, chillingly adding that the arms, legs and head had been sawn off. Police believe Madsen deliberately scuttled it. Authorities later found it and brought it up on to land for investigation. Both she and her client were pleased that the remains had been found, she told Danish media. "The tragedy has not only affected us and the other family but friends and colleagues around the world".

Friends and former classmates spread word about Wall's disappearance across the globe, hoping they could track her down.

"She gave a voice to weak, vulnerable and marginalized people".

"That voice would have been needed much, much longer".

Kim Wall's worked out of Brooklyn, New York, but she was in her own backyard while doing a story on Madsen.

Police said it was sunk deliberately and found no one else on board the vessel.

Ms Wall had gone to interview Madsen on August 10 and was reported missing a day later by her boyfriend.

"When I chatted with her on WeChat in July, she told me they'd rented an apartment and could move in after August 15".

On Thursday, Danish police revealed Ms Wall's torso was found "clothes-less", prompting a hunt for the journalist's orange turtleneck blouse, black and white skirt and white trainers.

Danes with whom Moreno has spoken about the case say the circumstances are very odd and that they have questions about Madsen's changing accounts of what happened, he said.

Two days later, police said DNA taken from Wall's toothbrush and hairbrush matched the remains. He is famous for his invention of three personal submarines, which have made him headline news in the past.

Madsen will continue to be held on preliminary manslaughter charges, police said.

The investigators were once again heard the suspect after the formal identification of the trunk, confront him with these items, even if, officially, the autopsy did not establish the cause of death.

As a freelancer, she was based in NY and Beijing.

Wall, 30, was a freelance journalist whose work had appeared in Harper's Magazine, The Guardian, The New York Times, Foreign Policy, the South China Morning Post, The Atlantic and TIME.

One in particular that has struck many as eerily similar was the discovery of the torso and body parts of a 22-year-old female Japanese tourist in plastic bags in the waters of Copenhagen harbour thirty years ago.
