A teenage serial killer terrorized his neighborhood by posting photos and videos of his dead victims on WhatsApp, according to police in Germany.

Herne police said that they have arrested 19-year-old Marcel Hesse, after being accused of murdering at least two people and taking photos of the dead bodies.

Hesse was caught after being on the run for some time. Hesse recently entered the Thessaloniki Grill in Herne, where he told workers to call police as he was wanted for murder.

According to the police investigation, Hesse lured 9-year-old Jaden to his home. Hesse then killed the boy and chopped up his body.

Hesse then posed with the body and uploaded the photos on the Internet. He also shared the photos on WhatsApp groups.

Hesse later went to the home of 22-year-old Christopher W. He played video games with the victim all night. The next day, Christopher confronted Hesse about the murder of Jaden.

In response, Hesse killed Christopher by stabbing him more than 60 times. Hesse then took photos of the lifeless body and uploaded them to the Internet.

Hesse also posted messages on a chat room, asking for a girl so he could rape her. Hesse then set fire to the apartment and went to the restaurant, where police arrested him.
