Mexican Police have detained an alleged serial killer after human bones were found under his house. Authorities also discovered a woman's body parts in the basement.


Police in Mexico has arrested a man for allegedly stabbing a woman to death and chopping her body into pieces. The 74-year-old suspect is believed to be a serial killer.

It, however, remains unknown how many women might have fallen victim to the suspect as DNA testings will be required to match the discovered evidence.

The number of items found suggests that the 74-year-old did not recently start killing women. He is presumed to have been doing it for some years.

Authorities tore up a concrete floor in the building while officials were left to dismantle the spare structure made of concrete block and tin roofing. This allowed forensic experts to sift through the site.

Cops were led to the building while searching for a 34-year-old woman who was declared missing. Inside, they found a shallow basement and the victim's body parts on top of a table.

 An Oldham man was arrested in March after neighbors called the cops to a house.


Further searching of the residence led them to ID cards, women's makeup, bags, clothing, notebooks, and videotapes tagged with women's names.

The suspect, a short, stocky man, was taken to jail on homicide charges. He has been identified only as "Andrés" as Mexican laws make provisions to protect a suspect's identity. 


Andrés' recent arrest is not the first that has been made in Mexico in recent years. In 2018, a man confessed to killing at least ten women and was apprehended by the police.

Mexico has experienced a surge in femicide in the past years, but activists claim the police do not do enough to prevent or investigate such happenings.

Similarly, an Oldham man was arrested in March after neighbors called the cops to a house over concerns for a woman's wellbeing.

She was later found dead in the house, and the man, Daniel Smith, was remanded in custody on charges of murder. Police released no other information.

As police continue their investigation, new details will continue to unravel, and without a doubt, justice will be served for all of the women who have lost their lives to these horrific crimes.
