Members and advocates of free press received the shock of their lifetime when they learnt about the mysterious death of freelance journalist Kim Wall. 

The head and 2 legs of Kim Wall were foud in a bag as said by Copenhegen Police Inspector Jens Moller. The autopsy report prepared by the doctors said that she must have been stabbed at least 14 times. 

Kim Wall was last seen with Peter Madsen who owns a private submarine The dane (UC3 Nautilus). It is said that the submarine Nautilus was crowd funded with a targeted fund of $ 50,000 in 2014 but could only realise $ 6,170. 

The various parts of the body of Kim Wall were found in bags that were sunk beneath the sea with pieces of metal weighing down the bags said Jens Moller of Copenhegen Police. 

Kim Isabel Fredrika Wall at the age of 30 achieved a feat in the field of journalism which is a rare achievement. In her current assignment Kim was researching on Peter Madsen who built a 40 ton private submarine. 

She had also worked on stories and reported from countries as dangerous as North Korea, Uganda and the south Pacific and the Haiti while working for the New York Times, Guardian, Vice and the South China Morning Post.
