(Scroll down for video) A 26-year-old man told police that he went on a killing spree because he was raped as a child, police in Brazil said.

Serial murderer Tiago Henrique Gomes da Rocha, who has confessed to killing at least 39 people including 16 women, homeless and transvestites, said that he was the victim of sexual abuse in his childhood.

Rocha went on a nine-month killing spree in Goiania, which ended last week, after police caught up with him.

Rocha allegedly shot and killed all his victims while riding a motorcycle, including a 14-year-old girl, who was standing at a bus stop.

“I had a normal childhood until I was 11 years old. Then I was sexually abused by a neighbor. I felt like I was nothing. I felt anger growing inside me. I started drinking a lot as well. When I was 22 years old, I could not stop myself anymore. I had to kill,” Rocha told investigators.

The murderer told prison guards that he is in the mood to kill more people. He also asked if he would face additional charges should he kill his fellow prison inmates.

Rocha was placed in isolation, and is on suicide watch.
