    Brazil - confesses to killing 40, including 2-year-old

    'Brazilian police have arrested a man who has confessed to the killing of 42 people over the last decade in the city of Rio de Janeiro.

    Police say they arrested Sailson Jose das Gracas on Wednesday, shortly after he stabbed a woman to death in a city suburb.

    He then confessed to killing another 37 women, three men and a two-year-old girl.'

    Das Gras says he prefered to kill white females and watched them for months before breaking into their homes. His three males victims were 'hired hits'. Although experts have warned he seems to be a psychopath seeking the limelight, police have already found four of his victims, they say.

    "At 17, I killed the first woman and that gave me a buzz. I kept on doing it and I enjoyed it," he said, adding on one occasion a couple, Cleusa Balbina and her former husband, Jose Messias, contracted him to kill someone for money. The pair are now under arrest.

    Gracas said he used a gun in contract killings but strangled his other victims.

    He planned his crimes meticulously, wearing a rain jacket to conceal his identity and gloves so as not to leave fingerprints.

    "When I wasn't killing someone I got uptight. I would pace up and down at home. Killing calmed me down.

    "I'd kill someone and then would think about the victim for two or three months. After that, I'd go off hunting for another victim, Gracas said.

    "I don't feel remorse - if I go to jail for 10, 15, 20 years, then as soon as I get out I'll do the same thing all over again."

    Under Brazilian law, the maximum prison term is 30 years.

    The difference between fiction and reality? Fiction has to make sense.

    And to think that every time I read another story I feel like it can't get any worse or be surprised anymore by the lack of humanity in this world, then I read this....so sick.
