Severed arm found in Danish waters may be Kim Wall's

STOCKHOLM (AFP) - 

A severed left arm found in waters off Copenhagen is probably dismembered Swedish journalist Kim Wall's, police said Wednesday, but a definitive identification could take weeks.

The arm had been weighed down with metal in a similar manner as the legs of Wall who died after boarding a Danish inventor's submarine.

The arm was found on Tuesday around one kilometre from the location where the 31-year-old's head and legs were discovered earlier, Copenhagen police said in a statement.

A source familiar with the investigation said the arm likely belonged to Wall but it may take weeks to confirm this.

Danish do-it-yourself inventor Peter Madsen, 46, in October admitted dismembering Wall's corpse.

She vanished after interviewing Madsen on his homemade submarine on August 10, and her body parts were later found in Koge Bay off Copenhagen.

Madsen is suspected of murdering Wall, but he has denied the allegations and said he does not know how she died. He has told police she died below deck while he was up on deck.

Prosecutors have previously said they believe Madsen killed Wall as part of a sexual fantasy, then dismembered her body and threw her remains into the sea.

Danish divers are to conduct another search on Thursday.
