Indonesian police were questioning a man Tuesday on suspicion of murdering his gay lover and at least four other people, a detective said.

Verry Henyanksyah was arrested last week after a dismembered male body was found in a suitcase in the capital, Jakarta, said police Col. Carlo Tewu. He said Henyanksyah allegedly confessed to the murder and said the victim was his lover.

The suspect then led police to four other bodies buried outside his parents' home in east Java, Tewu said.

Tewu said Henyanksyah had told police all the victims were male and one was a Dutch citizen.

He said the bodies, which were unearthed Monday, were too decomposed to immediately identify them or establish their sex.

Tewu said he feared Henyanksyah may have killed more people and urged residents to inform police if they knew anyone who had contact with Henyanksyah and then disappeared.

Over the past month, Indonesia has executed four people convicted of murder, two of whom were serial killers. (AP)
