Body found belongs to missing Swedish journalist: Danish police

Latest news

    Danish police confirmed on Wednesday morning that the torso found in the area in which a journalist went missing two weeks ago does belong to the woman.

    Kim Wall, a 30-year-old reporter, is believed to have died this month aboard an amateur-built submarine that sank in the Baltic Sea, The Associated Press reported. Police said Wednesday the torso — which was found without a head, legs or arms — is the remains of Wall.

    Danish police tweeted the torso was a DNA match with the reporter. Police said DNA from dried blood found on the submarine and DNA from Wall’s hair brush both matched the remains.

    Wall was to embark on a brief ride on Aug. 10 for a profile about 46-year-old Danish inventor Peter Madsen, according to The Associated Press. Wall’s boyfriend later told authorities the submarine had not returned, The AP reported.

    Madsen was arrested and charged in the death of Wall on Aug. 11, according to Danish police.

    Police say Madsen changed his story, first claiming he had dropped Wall off on land at Refshale Island and then changing it to say Wall had died in an accident on the submarine and she was buried at sea.
