JUAREZ--- Another man is arrested in connection with the brutal Juarez massacre.
Chihuahua State investigators tell sources he is a former police officer and worked as a hit man for the cartel.
Aldo Fabio Hernandez confessed to killing at least 40 other people, police said.
Investigators say he was paid about $160 a week to carry out those murders.
It was last month when 18 people were killed at a party in a south Juarez neighborhood.
As we reported, armed men blocked off the street and opened fire on them.
Many of them were teenagers.
In a video, Hernandez is seen confessing to police that he took part in the murders, even saying that he shot a man as he was trying to run away.
Investigators have also identified another suspect in the massacre.
We're told Jose Guadalupe Cavazos, also a former officer, managed to escape moments before Hernandez was arrested.
In all, 16-suspects are wanted for the massacre.
Three have been arrested and one alleged suspect was killed in a shootout.
