KUWAIT: Accused 'sex maniac' allegedly killed teen

Kuwaiti police were scouring a waste dump in search of the body of a Pakistani teenage girl believed killed and tossed there by an Egyptian "sex manic," according to the English-language Kuwaiti news website Arab Times, citing local newspapers.

According to the news report, the Ministry of the Interior has ordered a team of investigators to comb the Sabhan waste grounds in hopes of finding the remains of the young woman.

Police described the unnamed suspect, who was in custody, as a "quite eccentric" man who allegedly targeted young men and women, whom he "sometimes molested," according to the news report. Authorities said they found underwear, both men's and women's, at his apartment that they said had been stolen.

"He is also said to have hidden in obscured places and derived 'self-pleasure,' while he now and then visited rooftops of abandoned schools, snooping at apartments," the report said. "The suspect confessed to practicing ‘self-pleasure’ since he was 14 years old."

But another newspaper said the suspect was preparing to get married in a few weeks.

The victim was married to a man who also had disappeared, the report said.
