Juan Carlos “N” and his wife Patricia “N” were arrested in Ecatapec, Mexico, outside of Mexico City on Thursday for the murders of 10 women while transporting body parts in a baby carriage. The pair’s arrest came after an investigation into the disappearance of three women and a two-month-old infant. As authorities investigated, they learned that the couple was harboring an even larger secret.
Upon his arrest, Juan Carlos “N” (partially identified as per Mexican law) admitted to and gave detailed accounts of the 10 deaths in which he and his wife were suspects. But he didn’t stop there. He continued to detail the deaths of 10 more people, bringing his and his wife’s murder count to 20. He also said he raped some of the female victims and sold some of their body parts. Police searched their two houses, which they shared with their three children, and found dismembered body parts in buckets with cement and in the refrigerator wrapped in plastic bags. Clothing believed to belong to the victims was also found.
Juan Carlos “N” told authorities that he and his wife used a ruse to lure their victims. They mainly targeted young mothers and offered the women discounts on baby clothes.
Mexico state prosecutor Alejandro Gomez described Juan Carlos’ confession:
He described it in a completely natural way… I would say he actually seemed happy to have done this. He wants people to see his picture, to know his name… I would obviously classify this person as a murderer, a serial killer.
The couple underwent a psychiatric exam. Gomez said Juan Carlos has, “a mental disturbance consistent with psychosis and a personality disorder.” He also said that Patricia has been, “mentally disabled since birth, and also has acquired induced delirium.” And Gomez said, “Both can distinguish between right and wrong.”
People are shocked at the evil acts and the couple’s open admission.

Who in the world is just buying body parts from serial killers? Is it on the dark web or what?

Se inicio con la bÌ¼squeda de un BB y se terminÌ_ con esto. Que no se estaban investigando las desapariciones?. Se requiere orden y compromiso por parte de las autoridades de Ecatepec. Ya es hora de que se haga algo al respecto. Y el gobernador apÌÁ??????

Para este par deberÌ_a existir la pena capital, quien cree que se puedan readaptar estando toda su vida en prisiÌ_n?

For this couple should there be capital punishment, who believes that they can be readapted while their entire life in prison?
Imagine the look of horror as someone peaks into the stroller expecting a cute baby…..instead finds multiple arms and legs
sounds like such a lovely story
The case prompted a protest in Ecatepec on Sunday where people carried candles and white flowers and demanded that authorities take action against violence against women and girls in Mexico.
