Police have arrested a man who allegedly strangled a prostitute and let his friend have sex with her corpse before burning it "beyond recognition."
According to an arrest affidavit, Javier Hernandez, 29, was charged with first-degree murder Sunday after police said he confessed excitedly to a manthat he had killed a prostitute and burned her body next to his home. He also said a friend had sex with the woman's dead body before she was burned, the affidavit states.
Police in late January discovered the grisly remains of an Hispanic woman in a garage next to Javier Hernandez's home in south San Antonio.
Police said the body was so badly burned that they have not been able to identify her.
Officials said the woman was aged between 18 and 35 with brown hair, breast implants and a tattoo on her back. Investigators have released a picture of her tattoo in a desperate bid to discover who she was.
