One of those arrested for the disappearance of British journalist Dom Phillips and Brazilian indigenista Bruno Pereira confessed to having killed and buried their bodies.

According to detective Eduardo Fontes on Wednesday, one of the suspects, Amarildo da Costa, confessed and accompanied the police to the scene, where human remains were found.

Police will now work with Interpol to confirm the identities of the bodies, as well as to define the motive for the murder.

The suspect “recounted in detail the crime committed and indicated the place where he buried the bodies,” Fontes said.
