Swedish police say they will reopen old murder cases in an area near Copenhagen in the wake of the killing of Swedish journalist Kim Wall aboard a submarine.
Swedish broadcaster TV4 reported Monday that the southern region of Skane has around 120 unsolved killings.
Next month, DNA databases from Sweden and Denmark will be joined up, with Madsen's DNA expected to be tested against unsolved killings.
The divers found a second arm bogged down by weights in Koge Bay off Copenhagen, akin to how they discovered Wall’s left arm last week, ABC News reported.
"We therefore assume that the arm is connected to the submarine case," Copenhagen police chief investigator Jens Møller Jensen said in a statement.
Divers discovered Wall’s left arm on Nov. 21 in the same area near Koge Bay in Copenhagen.

The Danish inventor charged with murdering Swedish journalist Kim Wall on his private submarine reportedly told a former lover he had 'a murder plan' days earlier.
The report claims their conversation soon 'darkened' and Madsen talked about inviting someone onto his submarine, the UC3 Nautilus, 'where they would suddenly change the mood and begin cutting her up'.
March 8-April 25. The date for the verdict is unknown.
Danish inventor Peter Madsen has denied killing Swedish journalist Kim Wall on his homemade submarine, saying she died in an accident.
At his trial in Copenhagen, Mr. Madsen said the 30 year old died of carbon monoxide poisoning when the vessel filled with toxic fumes.
But he has admitted dismembering Ms. Wall's body and disposing of it at sea.

Shown a set of 50cm-long sharpened screwdrivers by Mr Buch-Jepsen, Madsen admitted that he had used them to pierce holes in the journalist’s torso, claiming he had wanted to make sure her body would sink for good in the waters off Copenhagen.
"I put some punctures in the body parts because I didn’t want them to be inflated by gases,” he said.
“There is nothing sexual in the fact that the stab holes were in her vagina. I understand why you might think there was, but there was nothing sexual in it for me.”
Madsen also admitted to having watched an animated film by a Russian snuff artist, which was found on his computer. The film, which was shown in court, depicted mongol warriors impaling naked women on spikes and then beheading one of them.

Of those, one of the critical witnesses in the trial will be the Navy submarine veteran Ditte Dyreborg.
When questioned about the fatal night, Madsen often refers to highly-detailed technical explanations about the submarine and how Wall died.
But Dyreborg, who is considered one of Denmark’s leading technical experts within the realm of submarines, will be more than a match for Madsen and his intricate explanations. In fact, Dyreborg has penned a report that casts doubt on Madsen’s explanations concerning Wall’s death.
