On Wednesday, October 10, 2018 a couple from Mexico were detained in the suburb city of Ecatepec on the suspicion of murder. The chief suspects that they may have murdered 10 women.The male suspects said during investigation that  they killed twice as much. Police arrested the pair, identified only as “Juan Carlos N.” and his wife “Patricia “N.,” during an investigation into the disappearance of three women and a two-month-old baby. The man gave detailed accounts of the original 10 deaths. He informed the police that he and his wife had killed a further 10 people.

 

Police found eight plastic buckets with body parts and cement in the couples house. Police found more remains in the refrigerator in plastic bags and now or doing test on the gruesome evidence. The couple, who live with their three children, were arrested while pushing the baby carriage through Ecatepec. The police were expected to find the missing baby but instead they found body parts.  It is now down to the prosecution to establish whether these claims are founded or whether they are just boasts by a “psychopath” or “serial killer,” say’s gomez.

 

The grim case has sent anger and shock through Mexico. Hundreds of people protested in Ecatepec on Sunday, AFP reported. People  carried candles and white flowers to demand action by authorities on deadly violence against women and girls. “In 2016, seven women and girls were killed in Mexico every day, according to UN Women figures”.
