He claimed to feel deep pleasure and sexual excitement watching their life fade before him.)
He went on to state that he would often act out gruesome tea parties with the bodies of the dead little girls and would prop them up and talk to them. When they didn’t respond, he would go out and kill more girls. Aura

Anti-Social Disorder
Avoidant Personality Disorder By: Cheyenne Strickley
& Dana Claussen 1949 - Tolmia, Colombia "La Violencia"
7 out of 13 children --> Mother was a prostitute
At 8, mother caught him touching little sister --> kicked him out Attempt to abduct 12 year old from marketplace
Chased down by merchants and arrested by police while rambling incoherently and thought to be a madman
Became silent in interrogation
Priest dressed up as inmate to make him feel comfortable and open up
Worked but details were too gruesome
Priest asked to be removed from cell Confession Confessed to murdering at least 110 girls in Ecuador, 100 in Colombia, and "many more than 100" in Peru after being confronted by police
"I like the girls in Ecuador. They are more gentle and trusting, more innocent. They are not as suspicious of strangers as Colombian girls."
He blamed his crimes on his hard life and lonely adolescence. "I lost my innocence at age eight," he explained, "so I decided to do the same to as many young girls as I could."
Police had a hard time belieing his confession because it was so gruesome and extremely surreal. When Pedro saw this he offered to take them to several burial sites of his victims across the country
First site found remains of 53 girls and he led them to 28 other sites where nothing was found but they think it is because of the floods and animals
Upon arrival back at police headquarters, Pedro was quickly charged with 57 counts of murder, however Pedro saw the ante boosted to 110 as a result of his detailed confessions.
No information is readily available on Pedro's vitims nor his brief trial but it is known to have occured sometime in late 1980.
Pedro Alonso Lopez was convicted on multiple counts of murder and sentenced to life in prison "I am the man of the century, no one will ever forget me."

"I went after my victims by walking among the markets searching for a girl with a certain look on her face — a look of innocence and beauty. She would be a good girl, working with her mother. I followed them sometimes for two or three days, waiting for when she was left alone. I would give her a trinket like a hand mirror, then take her to the edge of town where I would promise a trinket for her mother."

"I would take her to a secret hideaway where prepared graves waited. Sometimes there were bodies of earlier victims there. I cuddled them and then raped them at sunrise. At the first sign of light I would get excited. I forced the girl into sex and put my hands around her throat. When the sun rose I would strangle her." "It was only good if I could see her eyes, it would have been wasted in the dark — I had to watch them by daylight. There is a divine moment when I have my hands around a young girl's throat. I look into her eyes and see a certain light, a spark, suddenly go out. The moment of death is enthralling and exciting. Only those who actually kill know what I mean."
"When I am released I will feel that moment again."
"It took the girls five to 15 minutes to die. I was very considerate. I would spend a long time with them making sure they were dead. I would mirror to check whether they were still breathing. Sometimes I had to kill them all over again,"
"They never screamed because they didn't expect anything would happen. They were innocent."
"My little friends liked to have company, I often put three or four into one hole. But after awhile I got bored because they couldn't move, so I looked for more girls."
