Danish police recover head of journalist
COPENHAGEN, Denmark — Danish divers found the decapitated head, legs and clothes of a Swedish journalist who was killed after going on a trip with an inventor on his submarine, police said Saturday.
The body parts and clothing were found Friday in plastic bags with a knife and “heavy metal pieces” to make them sink near where 30- year- old Kim Wall’s naked, headless torso was found in August, Copenhagen police investigator Jens Moeller Jensen said.
Peter Madsen, the
46- year- old Danish inventor who is in pre- trial detention on preliminary manslaughter charges, has said Wall died after being accidentally hit by a 155pound hatch on the UC3 Nautilus submarine, after which he “buried” her at sea. But police have said 15 stab wounds were on her torso.
