Mexico City police arrested a professional chef accused of trading his wife for drugs and then mutilating her and giving her limbs to their dogs.
José Alfredo Camacho, 31, was under the influence of methamphetamine when authorities arrested him on Monday in connection with the murder of Jacqueline Pérez, 25.
Camacho confessed to investigators that he contacted his drug dealer via Facebook on Sunday and then offered to trade Pérez for a dose of crystal methamphetamine, police said.
José Alfredo Camacho was arrested Monday in connection with the murder of his wife, Jacqueline Pérez. He confessed to Mexico City police that he had used crystal meth after failing to reach an agreement with his supplier to trade Pérez for a dose of the drug on Sunday. He said he killed her, but he couldn’t remember.
Mexico City authorities recovered the body of Jacqueline Pérez on Monday after she was allegedly murdered by her husband, Jose Alfredo Camacho. Police found a bag containing parts of her body on the roof and limbs in a cooking pot in the apartment
The deal fell through, but Camacho told authorities he took crystal meth and at one point killed Pérez.
Police have not described how she died, but they said Camacho claimed she was already dead when he woke up Monday morning and could not remember killing her.
In his testimony, Camacho told police that he had used a kitchen knife to cut her body and then cooked both her arms. He intended to give them to their two dogs.
Camacho is under arrest and has yet to be formally charged with the murder of his wife.
Pérez’s mother, who was concerned after not hearing from her for several days, visited the house on Monday but was chased away by Camacho. He confessed to killing her daughter and then threatened to stab her.
The woman reported the incident to the Mexico City police, who then dispatched a team of officers to the house, which is located in the Milpa Alta neighborhood.
Camacho tried to flee over the roof, but was arrested. Authorities discovered Pérez’s remains in a bag left on the roof and her arms in the cooking pot.
Camacho is expected to appear before a judge this week to be formally charged with the murder of Pérez.
