[:en]Danish police investigating the murder of the Swedish journalist Kim Wall have found body parts, including her severed head.

The freelance journalist was last seen alive on 10 August when she went to interview the inventor Peter Madsen, who has been charged with her murder. Wall’s dismembered torso washed ashore 12 days after she boarded Madsen’s homemade submarine for the interview.

The police investigator Jens Møller Jensen said divers had found Wall’s head and legs, as well as her clothes and a knife, in plastic bags with “heavy metal pieces” to make them sink.

“Yesterday morning we found a bag within which we found Kim Wall’s clothes, underwear, stockings and shoes. In the same bag laid a knife, and there were some car pipes to weigh the bag down,” he said on Saturday.

A postmortem examination confirmed that the head was Wall’s and that it showed “no sign of fracture” or “any sign of other blunt violence to the skull”, he said.

The body parts were found on Friday near where her naked torso was found on 22 August, near the coast of Copenhagen. Wall’s arms are still missing. The cause of death has yet to be established.

Madsen, 46, maintains that Wall died after being accidentally hit on the head by a heavy hatch in the submarine, but a Copenhagen court heard there were 15 stab wounds on her body.

A fund set up in memory of the award-winning journalist has raised more than $90,000 (£69,000) of its $100,000 target since being launched by her friends and family. It would be used to provide grants to female reporters to pursue subculture stories, according to the Remembering Kim Wall website.

Wall, who had written for the Guardian and the New York Times, was reported missing by her boyfriend in the early hours of 11 August when she failed to return from her interview.

When the submarine was found, Madsen was rescued just before the vessel sank, and later arrested.

He initially claimed he had dropped her off safely in Copenhagen but later said there had been a “terrible accident” and he had buried her at sea, insisting her body was intact at the time.

A court has heard that footage of women being strangled and decapitated was found on a hard drive believed to belong to the inventor.

His lawyer, Betina Hald Engmark, told Reuters she had been informed that further body parts and clothes had been found, but declined to comment further. Madsen will appear in court again on 31 October.[:es]La policía danesa anunció este sábado el hallazgo de la cabeza y las piernas de la periodista sueca Kim Wall, que murió cuando fue a entrevistar al inventor danés Peter Madsen en agosto a bordo de su submarino.

Los buzos encontraron en la bahía de Køge, no lejos de Copenhague, varias bolsas, una con ropa de la periodista y otra con la cabeza y sus piernas, precisó el inspector de policía de Copenhague, Jens Moller Jensen.

“La pasada noche, nuestro dentista forense confirmó que se trataba de la cabeza de Kim Wall”, declaró a la prensa.

El tronco de la joven mujer, cuyas extremidades y cabeza fueron seccionados de forma deliberada, fue descubierto por un ciclista en la bahía de Køge el 21 de agosto, 11 días después de su desaparición.

Acusado de asesinato y afrenta contra la integridad de un cadáver, Peter Madsen, de 46 años, está detenido desde el 11 de agosto.

Este ingeniero autodidacta, obsesionado por la conquista del mar y del espacio, afirma ser inocente, a pesar de los numerosos indicios en su contra.

El martes, la fiscalía danesa anunció que se encontró en su taller un disco duro con películas “fetichistas” en las que mujeres “reales” eran torturadas, decapitadas y quemadas. Madsen dijo que este disco duro no le pertenecía, dando a entender que varias personas tenían acceso a su taller.

El 10 de agosto, cerca de Copenhague, Peter Madsen embarcó en el UC3 Nautilus, un submarino que él mismo había diseñado y construido, con Kim Wall, una periodista independiente de 30 años que quería entrevistarlo.

Por la noche, el compañero de la reportera alertó a la policía al no tener noticias suyas.

Madsen fue auxiliado el 11 cerca del estrecho de Öresund, entre Dinamarca y Suecia, poco antes de que su submarino naufragara, después de ser saboteado por el propio inventor, según las autoridades danesas.

En un primer momento, Madsen dijo que la periodista había desembarcado con vida en la isla de Refshaleoen, en Copenhague, la noche del 10 de agosto.

Después, cambió su versión de los hechos y explicó que la mujer había sucumbido a un accidente y que, movido por el pánico, lanzó su cuerpo al mar.

La acusación afirma que Madsen mató a Wall para satisfacer sus fantasías sexuales, y que después mutiló el cuerpo.[:]
