Spanish police are quizzing 11 prostitutes who provided sexual services to a man who allegedly butchered a 25-year-old woman and is suspected of being a cocaine-addicted serial killer.
Reports said the suspect is linked to the deaths of several women who passed away from drug overdose.
According to local media, the suspect, 38-year-old Colombian national Jorge Ignacio Palma, handed himself over to Civil Guard cops in the town of Carcaixent in the eastern Spanish province of Valencia.
He reportedly told the police that he killed and dismembered Marta Calvo, 25, before throwing her body parts into different bins after a night of sex and drugs.
Since his reported confession, the police have quizzed 11 women who provided sexual services to the man.
According to local media, the sex workers claimed that Ignacio Palma is a ‘cocaine addict’ who loves ‘white parties’ – because of the white powder they consume.
The authorities now suspect Ignacio Palma of being a serial killer linked to the murders of other women, according to reports.
One sex worker told the cops: “He would insist on giving me a massage with his hands caked in cocaine.”
Another woman said: “He poisoned me and I lost consciousness.”
The Spanish Civil Guard suspects that he might be linked to the murder of Brazilian prostitute Arliene Ramos in April 2019, according to local media.
Reports said that the authorities believe he used illegal substances to drug women and they reportedly found cocaine on his genitals.
Before he handed himself over the police, he reportedly went on a date with Calvo after meeting on the internet.
Police are searching a waste treatment plant in Guadassuar to find the victim’s body.
The investigation is ongoing.
