LIMA - The body of a Spanish volunteer who worked at a home outside Lima for children with AIDS was found buried in the facility's yard.
Marcos Lucas Sesarego, 67, had been stabbed four times, Peruvian television reported on Tuesday.
He had not been seen in more than two weeks by staffers at the San Camilo Home in the town of Chosica, located some 40 kilometres (about 25 miles) from the capital.
Employees of the home said they were surprised at first when the Spaniard stopped coming to work, but they assumed that the volunteer, who had arrived in Peru about six months ago, had returned to Spain.
The facility's director called police on Monday after detecting a strong odour in the yard.
Police, forensics specialists and a prosecutor sent to the home found Sesarego's body buried on the property.
Peruvian television said police were questioning three residents of the home, including an African released from a Lima prison after he was diagnosed with AIDS.
