In El Salvador, officials say up to 40 bodies, mostly women, could be buried at the house of a former detective. Hugo Ernesto Osorio Chávez was arrested earlier this month for killing a woman and her daughter, which prompted the search of his home and led to the grim discovery. Nine other people have been implicated in the crimes so far, including former police officers and former soldiers. El Salvador recorded 70 femicides last year.
