The body of the missing young man Jesus Cuevas has been discovered thanks to “an arduous investigative process,” according to the police’s explanation on Friday, Nov. 4, said reports.

The procedure involved gathering video from the location's security cameras as well as other actions that the institution would want to keep secret.

In a meeting with journalists, Colonel Diego Pesquira, the spokesman for the National Police, stated: “This is why an arrest and search warrant is requested before a judge, and there (in a house located at kilometer 7 of the Sánchez highway) the findings that are currently being analyzed are made.”

Additionally, he stated that the Department of Search for Missing Persons of the Police, working with the staff of the Central Directorate of Criminal Investigations (Dicrim), used all of the institution’s technological resources for almost four weeks.

When police detained Francisco Javier Garcia Quezada (Antony), he confessed to the crime and showed them where the victim's body was.

The residence where the dismembered body of Cuevas was kept inside a black-covered plastic tank was where the confessed murderer of Cuevas lived for several weeks with his three-year-old son.

After the separation from his wife more than a year ago the 32-year-old man lived with the child in his third-floor apartment, while the body of the young man, who had been reported missing on Oct. 6, decomposed and the vile smell concerned the neighbors.

Residents of the neighborhood, which is situated on the third street of the San José sector at kilometer 7 of the Sánchez Highway, told Diario Libre that they have been smelling a strong odor for more than two weeks and initially believed it to be mice.

The pestilence continued up until Nov. 3, when the accused was brought to the scene by the police, much to everyone’s surprise. They had searched for a dead body but found nothing, so they decided to clean the septic tank.

Cuevas' body is in the National Institute of Forensic Sciences (Inacif) and official information is awaited from the National Police on the cause of his death.
