(Newser) – Danish police said Thursday that the headless torso of Swedish reporter Kim Wall, who is believed to have died on a submarine that sank, was found naked and they are now also searching for her clothes. Copenhagen police spokesman Steen Hansen said investigators found a "clothes-less" torso. He said that investigators were looking for her clothes, including an orange turtleneck blouse, a black-and-white skirt, and white sneakers. Divers and members of the Danish Emergency Management Agency were combing the coast of the Amager island in Copenhagen, in the area where Wall is believed to have died, the AP reports.

The 30-year-old Wall was last seen alive Aug. 10 aboard the submarine of Danish aerospace and submarine enthusiast Peter Madsen. Police have arrested him on suspicion of manslaughter. Madsen has confessed to police he buried Wall at sea after an accident aboard his submarine, UC3 Nautilus. On Wednesday, a candlelight vigil was held by classmates at Columbia University's School of Journalism in New York, where Wall studied. BuzzFeed interviews a number of Wall's friends, who describe her as an adventurous "badass."
