Danish divers looking for the remains of Swedish journalist Kim Wall, whose torso washed ashore in Copenhagen this summer, made a gruesome discovery Friday nearby in Køge Bay.
"We found a leg and then another leg, and shortly thereafter, we found a head, which was also in a bag weighed down by several pieces of metal," Chief Police Investigator Jens Møller Jensen said at a press briefing Saturday, according to a translation by The Guardian. Møller Jensen said they also found a weighted bag containing a knife and Wall's clothing, socks and shoes.
There were no signs of fracture or blunt force trauma to the skull, according to Møller Jensen. Friday's discovery will likely strengthen prosecutors' case against Danish inventor Peter Madsen.
Wall, 30, died after going out on Madsen's homemade submarine on Aug. 10 for a story. A day later, the vessel had sunk, Madsen was rescued alone and claimed that Wall died in "a terrible accident" and that he buried her body at sea.
Officials were skeptical. Police said the submarine had been deliberately sunk. And on Aug. 21, Wall's torso, with metal attached, was discovered. Madsen has been charged with manslaughter, the legal equivalent of murder in Denmark.
