A couple, detained in Mexico while transporting human body parts in a baby carriage, has admitted to killing 20 people. Under interrogation, the man, identified as “Juan Carlos N”, confessed on Monday to raping and murdering 20 women, and selling their body parts and belongings. Carlos and his wife, “Patricia – were arrested on Thursday in Ecatepec, on suspicion of killing 10 women. In custody, the man gave detailed accounts of those murders and then revealed to investigators that he and his wife had killed 10 other people, as well. Prosecutors are now trying to establish whether their claim is true, or the boast of a “psychopath serial killer.”He described it in a completely natural way … I would say he actually seemed happy to have done this,” Gomez said in an interview with Mexican radio network, Formula.
“He wants people to see his picture, to know his name … I would obviously classify this person as a murderer, a serial killer,” he said.
The man also claimed he was forced to dress as a woman by his mother, which he said sparked off his hatred against women. The man also claimed he was forced to dress as a woman by his mother, which he said sparked off his hatred against women.
