Top Physics Student Kills And Dismembers Date

Top Physics Student Kills And Dismembers Date

An award winning physics student who throttled and then butchered a girl he met on Facebook has been arrested a year after he carried out the killing, say prosecutors in Mexico.

Alleged killer Javier Mendez Ovalle, now aged 23, had been voted the best physics student in the country in a Mexican Education Ministry backed contest, but told pals that although he understood science he could not understand women and was depressed that he could not get a girlfriend.

However, when he finally did meet one over Facebook, he invited her back to his apartment where they had a furious row on their first date and he ended up killing her.

The 19-year-old victim's dismembered body was found scattered in plastic bags near Javier's apartment in the capital Mexico City.

But although police were soon on his trail after reading through the young girl's Facebook messages, he disappeared and thanks to a fake identity spent more than a year living undetected nearby in San Juan del Rio.

A prosecutor's office spokesman said: "They met, went out and eventually went back to his apartment. Witnesses say they was some sort of argument and he strangled her and then cut her into pieces to get rid of her body.

"He never came back to his apartment or his old life and there was a world wide search for him until we found him here right on our doorstep."

Mexico City's attorney general Attorney General Rodolfo Rios Garza added: "He met the victim on a social network where he pretended he could help her find a job."

"He says that when she realised there was no job they started to argue and then he pushed her and injured her head. Moments later the girl started to scream and then he strangled her until she was dead.

"He says that he then panicked and he dismembered her body. He cut her legs off and then her head and put all the pieces into garbage bags and threw them out with the rubbish," he added.

Before the killing, Ovalle was considered one of Mexico's brightest students and had represented his country at several international physics competitions.
