Swedish journalist Kim Wall's decapitated head is found


"It is from an exploratory angle, but definitely also from an ethical angle, so that the relatives of Kim Wall can get a whole human being once she is to be buried", Møller Jensen said reports Danish newspaper Politiken.

The head, legs and clothes of Swedish journalist Kim Wall - who died after going on a trip with an inventor on his submarine - have been found by divers, police in Denmark have said.

The talented and much-loved 30-year-old was reported missing after boarding Danish inventor Peter Madsen's self-built submarine on 10 August.

Her headless torso was found floating in waters off Copenhagen on August 21, 11 days after she went missing.

The exact cause of death is yet to be established. A day later, the vessel had sunk, Madsen was rescued alone and claimed that Wall died in "a bad accident" and that he buried her body at sea.

"Last night, our dentist examiner confirmed that he was the head of Kim Wall", said the inspector of the police of Copenhagen, Jens Moller Jensen. They were in bags that contained pieces of metal, which the police said might have been used to weigh down the bags at the bottom of the seabed. Officials said her head, arms and legs had been deliberately cut off after her death.

In September, he told a court Wall died in an accident when she was hit by the submarine's heavy hatch cover.

Madsen remains in police custody as the investigation continues.

Madsen was later captured and held in guardianship on doubt of murdering Wall. The following pre-trial hearing is planned for October 31.

Wall, a graduate of Columbia University and London School of Economics, was based between Beijing and NY.
