Police spokesman Jens Moller Jensen told reporters today that the body parts will be investigated further to try and determine a cause of death.

"The Danish police announced on Saturday that he had found the head and the two legs of the journalist for Swedish deceased in the month of August last".

The talented and much-loved 30-year-old was reported missing after boarding Danish inventor Peter Madsen's self-built submarine on 10 August.

Her torso was found in the sea off Copenhagen 11 days later. The journalist was reported missing by her boyfriend the following day.

On Friday, divers discovered bags in Koge Bay, south of Copenhagen that contained the head, legs and clothes belonging to the journalist.

Police say the submarine only sailed in Danish waters during the August 10-11 trip. He slipped and lost his grasp on the incubate, which at that point hit her on the head, he said.

Madsen remains in police custody as the investigation continues.

If Madsen is charged with murder and convicted, he faces a sentence of five years to life.

For the prosecution, it is no doubt that the inventor has killed Kim Wall to fulfill a sexual fantasy before killing her and dismembering. The creator initially asserted he had dropped Wall off ashore the evening of August 10, as indicated by a police explanation.

He remained calm during the pre-trial session, sitting with his hands folded most of the time.

After throwing her body parts overboard he deliberately sank the vessel and claimed he had meant to stay on board.

Wall worked as a freelance journalist based in New York and China, and her articles were published in the Guardian, the New York Times, and others.
