Further details were sparse.
Cuellar said investigators have "very strong evidence" that he is responsible for the deaths of the four women, who are believed to worked as prostitutes. It's also not clear exactly when and where the crimes took place.

Authorities didn't disclose the victims' names or nationalities and they declined to discuss the evidence or say how the women were killed - but local media outlets have linked them to at least three bodies found in the area over the last two weeks.
