Update at 5:50 p.m. ET: At a news conference, Copenhagen police said a woman's torso - which was missing its head, arms and legs - was discovered later Monday in shallow water near Copenhagen.

A headless and limbless torso was spotted by a member of the public near Copenhagen on Monday 21 August.

Before his story changed, Madsen told police that he dropped Wall off from the ship late on August 10, and later barely made it after the ballast tank malfunctioned and the Nautilus sank in less than a minute.

Jens Moller, the chief homicide investigator of the Copenhagen police, told the Times, "It's way, way too early to say if it's Kim Wall".

He then changed his story several days later when he appeared in court, saying Wall died in an accident on board and that he dumped the body at sea in an undefined location of the Koge Bay.

The results of the DNA testing are expected on Wednesday.

The Danish inventor-entrepreneur Peter Madsen, 46, has admitted that the 30-year old Swedish reporter was killed on his submarine, by accident. Køge Bay is about 30 miles south of the Danish capital.


Wall's family talked with AP reporters and said while the journalist had worked in many risky places around the world, it was stunning that "something could happen. just a few miles from the childhood home".

Madsen was rescued by another boat and the Nautilus was subsequently recovered.

It sank hours after the search for Ms Wall began, and Mr Madsen was charged with negligent manslaughter.

A Swedish journalist who was missing since August 11 after she boarded a privately built submarine died on the vessel, said the submarine's owner. Divers, sonar and helicopters are being used to search for her body along the route that the submarine took before sinking.

Wall has written for various publications including the New York Times, the Guardian and TIME.

Danish police believe the 40-tonne vessel was deliberately sunk by Mr Madsen, who was rescued before being arrested.

"We first met Kim in 2013 when she was awarded a scholarship from us, but over the past four years, Kim has become so much more than just one of our former scholars".
