He also admitted to carrying out acts of cannibalism and eating parts of his victims’ corpses as well.

Police took away over 4,000 bones and fragments from the house, some buried under concrete in the basement.

Cops found a further cache of 300 bones at the property in the last four months.

Local media said Mendoza met many of his victims in nightclubs before tricking them to come home with him and stabbing them in the heart, cutting them up, and burying them in the basement.

The serial killer, the subject of a new documentary series called ‘Cannibal: Total Indignation’, threw salt over the corpses to help preserve them.

Now investigators are trying to literally piece together the remains of his victims to establish their identities.

Overall, the Cannibal of Atizapan is suspected of killing over 30 victims in the last three decades.

The authorities said two ongoing investigations will be concluded by 30th July and 18th September respectively.
