PANAMA CITY – Authorities said they recovered three more bodies Tuesday on property owned by a jailed US man who prosecutors say has confessed to killing five fellow Americans to get their money and property in a Panamanian resort area.

Jose Pachard, deputy director of the Institute of Legal Medicine and Forensic Sciences, said the remains were found with the help of information provided by the suspect, William Dathan Holbert.

He said searchers found the bodies of an adult man, adult woman and child on the grounds of a hostel operated by Holbert. Two other bodies were found earlier, touching off a search for Holbert and his wife.
