MEAUX, France, July 30 (AFP) - French police said Friday they had partially solved the mystery surrounding the bodies of two women found in a canal outside Paris earlier this week, after a friend of one of them admitted killing her by mistake when a sado-masochistic sex act went wrong.

Cyril Koskinas, aged 24, was placed under investigation for murder after he told police he threw Angelique Desposte into the Ourcq canal on Monday thinking she had suffocated to death on a gag.

The 22 year-old's naked body, bound by a strap in the foetal position, was found on Tuesday at Fresnes-sur-Marne, 25 kilometres (15 miles) east of the capital, one day after a first corpse similarly treated was discovered near the same spot.

The first body, of a woman in her 30s, has still not been identified. She is believed to have been in the water several days.

Koskinas told police he had no knowledge of her, but investigators said the similarity between the two cases made him the prime suspect.

Police who searched his home took away handcuffs and sexual accessories, as well as binding-tape and home-made sex videos.
