ABOVE: Danish police confirm headless torso is missing journalist Kim Wall.

Danish police say the torso of Swedish reporter Kim Wall, who is believed to have died on a submarine that sank, was found naked and they are now searching for her clothes.

The 30-year-old Wall was last seen alive Aug. 10 aboard the submarine of Danish aerospace and submarine enthusiast Peter Madsen.

Prosecutor Jakob Buch-Jepsen said Thursday that police expect to raise the preliminary charges against Madsen to murder and indecent handling of corpse when Madsen appears at a hearing Sept. 5 on whether his pre-trial detention should be extended.
