Police: Found torso is the body of Kim Wall
In a tweet at 6.55, the Danish police announced that there is a DNA match between the torso found on Vestamager Monday and the Swedish journalist Kim Wall. The police holds a press conference at 9.00, where the chief will tell more about the matter.
Yesterday afternoon, the Copenhagen Police issued a press briefing on the torso that was found on Monday:
"It's a torso, where both the arms, legs and head have been conciously removed. We can say that the length of the torso means that there is nothing that speaks for the fact that it may be Kim Wall, but we still do not know yet," said Jens Møller, chief.
But after the DNA analysis, the police have now concluded that it is the 30-year-old Swedish journalist who traveled with Peter Madsen in his homemade submarine Nautilus and was never seen alive again.
On Monday morning, the Copenhagen Police issued a press release, revealing parts of Peter Madsen's explanation of the constitutional hearing:
"In court, the accused said that an accident happened on board the submarine that caused Kim Wall's death and that he subsequently buried her at sea in a unspecified place in Køge Bay," states the press release.
With new information from the police, it now indicates that Peter Madsen has dismembered Kim Wall's body before he "buried her at sea". Throughout the course, Peter Madsen has pleaded innocent of murder.
