Madsen has subsequently been charged with killing Wall, dismembering her body and throwing the parts into the water.

Last week, a prosecutor reported that there was video footage of women being decapitated were discovered on Madsen's hard drive.

Her torso was washed up in Copenhagen later in the month. The cause of death has yet to be established.

The plastic bags contained knives and "heavy metal pieces" apparently to make them sink, Jensen added, as cited by AP.

Wall's identity was confirmed through dental records, and her head showed no signs of any skull fractures or other cranium damage, contradicting 46-year-old Peter Madsen's explanation that Wall was killed when a 150-pound hatch on his submarine struck her in the head.

Her torso had also been weighed down when it was found, also in Koge Bay.

"Yesterday morning we found a bag within which we found Kim Wall's clothes, underwear, stockings, and shoes".

Madsen remains in police custody as the investigation continues.

Madsen's lawyer Bertina Hald Engmark was tightlipped after the discovery. A talented writer, her work appeared in The New York Times, the Guardian and TIME, among publications. He has claimed that Ms Wall's death was accidental and that she was hit by a hatch cover.

The court heard he had been working on building a space rocket in the lab.

His homemade submarine Nautilus, launched in 2008, was the biggest private sub ever made when he built it with help from a group of volunteers. Madsen was rescued from the sinking vessel and brought ashore, where he was picked up by police, but there was no trace of the missing journalist.
