The long arm of the law has caught up with a 72-year-old suspected ‘serial killer cannibal’ identified as Andrés Mendoza after the remains of his 34-year-old missing girlfriend and at least eight other women were discovered at his home.
The Attorney General’s Office for the State of Mexico disclosed that the eight other women may have been murdered by Andrés Mendoza, 72, during a 20-year stretch.
Imagen Television reported that Mendoza who videotaped the killings of his victims confessed to have eaten their body parts.
Police in the town of Atizapan were conducting a search for Reyna González, a mother of two girls, when they found her dismembered body inside Mendoza’s on Saturday, May 15.
The mother of two was reported missing last Friday after she went to Mendoza’s home at noon to tell him that she was going to end their relationship.
Mendoza did not agree with González’s ending their relationship and reportedly stabbed her inside his home.
According to Infobae, Mendoza drove the knife into González’s chest and then used a machete to cut her limbs off before stuffing her body parts into a bag.
Authorities entered Mendoza’s home Saturday at approximately 8pm and searched the home before they made the gruesome discovery.
