Investigators confirm Kim Wall ’s body had puncture wounds, metal attached. He initially said he dropped Wall off on an island in Copenhagen but later changed his story to say she died in an accident and he buried her at sea .

The saw was found on Wednesday in Koge Bay, south of Copenhagen, police said. It was there that Wall 's headless torso was found 11 days after her Aug 10 Locating Wall 's head has been crucial to investigators , as the final autopsy on the torso was unable to establish the cause of death.

Madsen, 46 - who has been in custody since 11 August - has denied homicide and mutilating a body.

He initially told police Ms Wall died when a 70kg (154lbs) hatch door fell on her head and that he panicked and threw her body overboard.

But the recovery of her head contradicts his version of events, as police said an autopsy showed "no sign of fracture on the skull and there isn't any sign of other blunt violence to the skull".

Locating Wall's head had been crucial to investigators, as the final autopsy on the torso was unable to establish the cause of death.

However, it did show multiple mutilation wounds to Wall's genitals.

Prosecutors believe Madsen killed her as part of a sexual fantasy, then dismembered and mutilated her body.

Investigators found a hard disk in Madsen's workshop that contained fetish films in which women were tortured, decapitated and burned.

Madsen has refused to cooperate with investigators since the head and legs were found, prosecutor Jakob Buch-Jepsen said on Wednesday.

Danish and Swedish authorities are also taking a fresh look at unsolved murders involving mutilated women to see if there is any link to Madsen.
