Mexican Authorities in Baja California are searching for a suspect responsible for murdering three women who were found dead in hotel rooms last month. 

Investigators have a good idea who the suspect is, Baja California Attorney General Ricardo Iván Carpio Sánchez said, describing him as an American who lives north of the border. The three women worked in bars and strip clubs in Tijuana, but Caprio Sanchez believes more victims are unidentified. 

"This subject has criminal tendencies associated with violent and psychopathic behavior, maintaining a profile very similar to that of someone who became very well known decades ago: Ted Bundy," Ricardo Iván Carpio Sánchez, head of the agency, told the press, referring to the infamous American criminal who confessed to killing thirty women in the 1970s.

Caprio Sánchez told reporters in Tijuana the suspect sodomized his victims and carried out against them before killing them. 

Authorities have not released a description of the suspect. 

The Federal Bureau of Investigations and other U.S. law enforcement agencies have been notified and are searching for the suspect, according to Caprio Sánchez. The Baja California Prosecutor's Office has issued an arrest warrant to the Mexican federal government and the international police agency Interpol.
