Mexican investigators have found more than 3,700 pieces of bone during excavations in the house of an alleged female serial killer in the greater Mexico City area. The bones could come from 17 people, reported Mexican media such as TV Azteca, citing the attorney general of the central state of Mexico.
Accordingly, various objects such as cell phones, jewelry, handbags and key chains were found in the house in the city of Atizapan, which could have belonged to the people. Contact was made with six relatives of missing persons. The number of victims could still rise, also because after the excavations in the kitchen and part of the garden have now begun in other living rooms and the basement.
The murder of 34-year-olds brings the suspect on the trail
About a month ago, investigators found evidence of further crimes while investigating the murder of a 34-year-old in the house of the man named Andres N. Initial findings indicate that the alleged serial killer has been killing women in his house since 1991 and then dismembered. When he was arrested, the suspect reportedly reported the murder of 30 women.
In Mexico, which has been plagued by violence related to the so-called drug war for many years, there are an average of almost 100 murders a day – for comparison: in Switzerland in 2019 a total of 29. Last year, the government of the American country counted 966 femicides – that is, murders of women because of their gender. (kes / SDA)
