Police were able to identify the head using dental records.

A search was ongoing for the arms that were still missing.

Kim Wall was last seen alive on August 10th as she went to interview Peter Madsen on his home-made submarine which was moored near Copenhagen.

But police have said 15 stab wounds were on the torso found at sea off Copenhagen on August 21.

Police say the submarine only sailed in Danish waters during the August 10-11 trip.

Earlier this week investigators found that Madsen had images "which we presume to be real" of women being strangled and decapitated on a computer in a laboratory he ran.

DNA tests from Madsen's nails, face and neck showed a clear match with Wall's, Buch-Jepsen said, though the exact cause of death remained unknown.

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

"This hard drive doesn't belong to me", Madsen insisted, saying that numerous people had access to his workshop.

Kim Wall, 30 years old, was a journalist for Swedish independent.

Her head was in a bag along with two legs. Another bag contained her missing clothes.

The body parts were discovered Friday, and a police spokesman told reporters in Copenhagen there were no fractures in Wall's cranium.

They were found not far from where Ms Wall's torso was discovered 11 days after she boarded Peter Madsen's submarine on 10 August.

She reported on gender, popular culture, identity and foreign policy from China, Sri Lanka, Uganda, Haiti, North Korea, India and the Marshall Islands and was published by Harper's Magazine, New York Times, Foreign Policy, Atlantic, TIME, Slate, Vice and Guardian.

At the time of her disappearance, she was believed to be working on a feature story about Madsen, an eccentric, well-known figure in Denmark.
