Name Unknown

The victim's body was found in a garbage bag under the table in the apartment of 21 year-old Germán Alejo Torres, after neighbours had noticed a strong smell and called the police. The head, arms and legs had been cut off and put on the pavement to be picked up by the refuse collection. Torres confessed the crime. The victim could be identified preliminarily due to a tatoo and was presumably a sex worker.
