On Monday, a cyclist discovered Ms Wall's decapitated torso.
Kim Wall's mother Ingrid wrote of the family's "boundless sorrow" at the news that her daughter's remains had been found.
Police spokesman Jens Moller added: "There was also some metal attached to the body, allegedly also to make sure the body would sink to the bottom". The Nautilus sunk shortly after Madsen's meeting with Wall, and investigators believe it was done deliberately by the submarine's owner in an attempt to disguise evidence of Wall's death.
He changed his story the following day, telling Copenhagen City Court on August 12th that he had buried Wall at sea after she died on board due to an "accident".
Madsen, 46, who was charged last week with manslaughter, has denied having any involvement with Ms Wall's disappearance. He said in a statement released on Tuesday, "Naturally, the DNA match is a relatively large break through in the investigation which will now continue until we have built all possible information in the case". He was rescued from the waters after it sank.
One in particular that has struck many as eerily similar was the discovery of the torso and body parts of a 22-year-old female Japanese tourist in plastic bags in the waters of Copenhagen harbour thirty years ago.
Rather than dismiss it as a freakish piece of Nordic true crime (that will in all likelihood be dramatised or turned into a narrative documentary in time by commissioning editors), Wall was a real journalist going out of her way to tell an interesting story she did not need to tell.

The AP reports that witness Laura Laine described the attack to YLE: "We heard that a young woman was screaming. Finnish police said security had been reinforced at Helsinki's airport and train stations after the stabbings.
Madsen, an entrepreneur, artist, submarine builder and aerospace engineer, appeared before a judge on August 12 for preliminary questioning.
The Nautilus is the submarine from which Wall disappeared earlier this month, reportedly after boarding the sub to interview Madsen for an article she was writing about him.
Madsen initially told police he had let Wall off the submarine on an island.
But what happened to Ms Wall on board the submarine is still unclear. Dried blood found inside the submarine also matched DNA obtained from Wall's toothbrush and hairbrush.
Miss Toyonaga was murdered when Madsen was 15 - her killer was never found.
Wall was a graduate of Columbia Graduate School of Journalism, based between NY and China.
"Kim (was) always on the road, always working on new stories somewhere in the world, but she talked about how much she wanted to be based in Beijing", Cong, 26, said. And why wouldn't he bring her body to shore? He said investigators were looking for her clothes, including an orange turtleneck blouse, a black-and-white skirt and white sneakers.
