In addition to the thousands of bones found so far, dozens of photographs, two scales, a knife, a machete, books, notebooks, dozens of videocassettes, eight cell phones, makeup and other feminine accessories have also been found.
The authorities detailed that the remains are in a study stage called lateralization, which consists of the meticulous cleaning of each bone and then identifying which part of the body they correspond to.
The 72-year-old man was captured after his most recent victim, Reyna Gonzalez, 34, was reported missing on May 14. That day the woman left her home to meet Andras ‘N’, whom she and her husband knew personally. But by not giving signals until evening, the husband became suspicious of the septuagenarian.
According to the investigation, by that time the alleged femicide had already killed Gonzalez. He attacked her with a sharp weapon, mutilated her body and put her organs, limbs and tissues in different buckets. The subject, who claimed to be a butcher, revealed that he had removed the skin from his face because he thought it was very pretty and that he had filleted the meat from his legs.
Andres ‘N’ has recognized the murder of at least four other women who have disappeared and whose identity documents were found at their home. In addition, the investigators estimate that they were all attacked under the same ‘modus operandi’: he met them in a bar, took them to his residence, and stabbed and mutilated them before burying them. The criminal also confessed that he ate parts of the body of some of his victims and that he added salt to preserve them.
