(Newser) – A former butcher in Mexico has reportedly admitted to killing the 34-year-old wife of a local police official, but that appears to be only the tip of the iceberg, based on what authorities say they found in the basement of his home on the outskirts of Mexico City. The AP reports that on Saturday, investigators announced they'd retrieved almost 3,800 bone fragments, believed to belong to 17 alleged victims of the 72-year-old suspect identified officially only as Andres, underneath the floors of the residence in Atizapan, in the state of Mexico. Investigators say they also found ID cards of people who'd gone missing years ago, cellphones, women's clothing and shoes, jewelry, and cosmetics, as well as videotapes that indicate there may be recordings of the victims. Some of those recordings were on VHS cassettes and even 8mm videocassettes, indicating the killings may have stretched back for years. Police also suspect there could be even more victims than the 17 found.
