  • Police search a waterway for remains related to the death of Kim Wall

"At latest on September 5, we will try to hold [Peter Madsen] in custody on a murder charge. after her [dismembered] body was found", special prosecutor Jakob Buch-Jepsen told AFP this afternoon.

Mr Madsen's lawyer, Betina Hald Engmark, said the news that the torso was Ms Wall did not change her client's position, that the journalist had died in an accident.

On Thursday, Danish police revealed Ms Wall's torso was found "clothes-less", prompting a hunt for the journalist's orange turtleneck blouse, black and white skirt and white trainers.

Copenhagen police chief Jens Moeller Jensen said a piece of metal had been attached to her body "likely with the goal to make it sink".

Danish police believe the 40-tonne submarine was deliberately sunk by Mr Madsen. They told Associated Press they had received confirmation of her death "with boundless sadness and dismay", adding: 'The tragedy has hit not only us and other families, but friends and colleagues all over the world'. "We've lost a friend, a daughter, a sister and light of compassion in the world", Jose said.

"That something could happen to her in Copenhagen, just a few kilometers from the childhood home, we could not imagine at all".

Norway-based investor Georg Poul Artmann, who holds about 75 perc ent of the shares in the Rocket Madsen Space Lab company that owns the 40-ton, almost 18-metre-long submarine, told Denmark's Berlingske newspaper he would "clean up" within the company following recent events, but gave no details.

Madsen initially told police that Wall got off the Nautilus on an island after she finished interviewing him for a story.

After more than a week of searching, the body of missing Swedish journalist Kim Wall has finally been found.

Sasikala's sister in-law Elavarsi, who was also convicted and sentenced, was also seen walking behind her with a handbag. She had levelled the charges in a report to her superior, DGP (Prisons) H S Sathyanarayana Rao.


According to her family, Wall was working on a story about Madsen, 46, who dreamed of launching a manned space mission.

Madsen originally said he dropped her off near the Halvandet restaurant on Refshale Island in Copenhagen harbor on the evening of August 10. I can't imagine Peter having killed her intentionally, but I can imagine an accident happening.

Ms Wall had worked in many unsafe places as a journalist, and it was unimaginable "something could happen just a few miles from the childhood home", the family said.

They also confirmed they had found Wall's blood in the submarine, Møller Jensen told reporters.

Wall was a graduate of Columbia Graduate School of Journalism, based between NY and China.

The freelancer wrote for publications such as The New York Times, Harper's Magazine and The Guardian.

Wall was researching a story on inventor Peter Madsen and she was invited by the man himself to his submarine so that she could observe everything first-hand.

By Wednesday, police matched DNA taken from Wall's toothbrush and hairbrush to the torso.
