Danish Prosecutors Upgrade Charges for Sub Inventor Over Journalist's Death

A cyclist spotted the torso, which was missing a head, arms and legs, near the island of Amager outside Copenhagen on Monday, according to police, who said her body was deliberately mutilated.

DNA from the torso matched that found on Wall's hairbrush and tootbrush.

On Wednesday, as authorities formally identified her headless torso, police added that the body had been weighted down with metal and an attempt had been made to remove gas and air from inside it to keep it on the seabed.

Her last appearance was seen on the 10 of August and she was with the Danish inventor Peter Madsen's submarine and that submarine sank off Denmark's eastern coast the next day.

Ms Wall was a respected freelance journalist who wrote for publications such as the New York Times, Harpers and the Guardian.

He initially said he had dropped Wall off alive on a Copenhagen island, but later changed his story to say she died in an accident on board and he had buried her body at sea at an unknown location in Koge Bay, south of the capital.

In an email to The Associated Press on Wednesday, the family says "the tragedy has hit not only us and other families, but friends and colleagues all over the world".

The sad incident of her death happened on 11 of August.

It resurfaced at around 10.30am, but sank soon afterwards and Madsen was rescued by the Danish Navy as it went down.

The submarine was found about 15 hours after it had departed Copenhagen. At 2.30am on Friday morning, her boyfriend reported her missing.

But Klimov's appeared to be a lone voice, with most top Russian officials saying Moscow would show restraint. Visa interviews at the consulates are suspended "until further notice", according to the fact sheet.

Tabloid Ekstra Bladet, quoting unnamed sources, said Madsen has asked to be transferred to solitary confinement, allegedly out of fear of being attacked inside the prison.

Jose went to journalism school with Wall at Columbia University in NY.

DNA tests that were conducted on the journalist, have confirmed that the torso was that of Wall, police investigator Jens Moeller has said.

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.

Investigators recovered and searched the sunken vessel, which police believe Madsen sank intentionally.

Danish police are searching for the clothes Wall wore on the submarine: an orange fleece, flowery skirt and white sneakers.

He denies killing Ms. Wall, but remains in custody pending his trial.

The New York Times, too, drew parallels with the Scandinavian crime genre, even going so far as to contact the screenwriter behind The Bridge - one of the most popular "Scandi-dramas" - for comment.

Copenhagen police are re-examining old cases, as is standard in such investigations, Mr Jensen said, including the death of a 22-year-old Japanese woman, whose torso was found in Copenhagen harbour in 1986. Despite her body and blood being found on his sub, Masden is in good spirits.
