Mexico couple found with body parts could have killed 20

Police in Mexico are investigating a couple arrested for transporting body parts in a pram in connection with at least 10 murders.
At a hearing following his arrest, the man reportedly confessed to killing 20 women in a suburb of Mexico City.
Investigators have found body parts in the couple’s flat and at another nearby property. They were kept in buckets filled with cement and in a fridge.
Prosecutors say the couple sold the body parts but it is not clear to whom.
Femicides – murders of women – are common in Mexico and often go unpunished, but the gruesome details of this case have caused outrage and triggered street protests in Ecatepec, the poor suburb in Mexico state where they occurred.
’Victim’s baby sold’
Neighbours said that whenever they saw the couple they were pushing the pram in which police found the body parts.
Police stopped and searched them after the disappearance in September of a local woman, 28-year-old Nancy Huitron and her two-month old baby, Valentina.
