The body part that washed up on a Copenhagen beach earlier this week has been identified as missing Swedish freelance journalist Kim Wall.

The Copenhagen police said that the DNA test confirmed it was belonged to Kim Wall.

The missing journalist's torso was found on Monday afternoon and the police have said that the arms, legs, and head were removed deliberately.

Ms Wall went missing after boarding a homemade submarine on 10 August while working on a story about the sub’s owner, a Danish inventor.

The sub’s owner became a suspect in her disappearance. On Monday, he turned himself into the police saying that an accident occurred while the journalist was interviewing him on-board the submarine. He said he later buried her at sea in an unspecified location before sinking the submarine.

The submarine’s owner has been arrested for the death of Kim Wall and will be charged with murder or manslaughter.
