Serial killer aged just 26 confesses to 39 murders


A 26-year-old Brazilian security guard who lived with his mother has confessed to murdering 39 people, which would make him one of the world's most prolific killers.

Thiago Henrique Gomes da Rocha was arrested by police in Brazil when they found he was facing trial for stealing the number plate on a motorbike at a supermarket in Goiania in January.

Days later he was was stopped by police riding a motorbike with a fake plate.

After he had been arrested, he confessed to the killings which he put down to the 'fury he felt against everything', which only subsided when committing murder. 

The self confessed killer shot his victims dead from a motorbike, while 'cruising the streets'.
