But police have said 15 stab wounds were on the torso found at sea off Copenhagen on August 21. Since then, further investigation has found that Wall's corpse was mutilated with stab wounds to the ribcage and genitals.

The following day, Madsen was rescued from the sinking submarine without Wall and was arrested the same day.

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

"Last night our forensic dentist confirmed that it was Kim Wall's head", he said.

Madsen has told the court in past hearings Wall died accidentally, saying she was hit by a heavy hatch cover on his UC3 Nautilus submarine. He claimed the computer hard drive were not his, saying it was accessible to other people in his laboratory.

Madsen has insisted there was no sexual relationship between him and Wall, and that their contacts had been professional. The bag found by divers off the coast of Denmark Friday also contained a knife and pipes used to weight it down.

"We have found the head and two legs, but we have not found her arms", Mr. Moller said.

"It is from an exploratory angle, but definitely also from an ethical angle, so that the relatives of Kim Wall can get a whole human being once she is to be buried", Møller Jensen said reports Danish newspaper Politiken.

Madsen's lawyer Bertina Hald Engmark was tightlipped after the discovery.

Kazuko Toyonaga, a 22-year-old student, was on vacation in Europe when she disappeared. A talented writer, her work appeared in The New York Times, the Guardian and TIME, among publications. Wall was working on a story about Madsen, who dreamed of launching a manned space mission.

But the group became engaged in a long-running dispute over the Nautilus, before members of the board made a decision to transfer the vessel's ownership to Madsen, according to the sub's website.
