    Arrest China's 'Jack the Ripper' targeted women/girls who wore red.

    http://cnews.canoe.com/CNEWS/Crime/2.../22662660.html

    Police say they've finally captured an elusive Chinese serial killer who killed 11 women and girls who were all targeted because they wore the colour red.

    The killings all happened between 1988 and 2002 in northern China. The youngest victim was eight years old.
    "The suspect has a sexual perversion and hates women. He's reclusive and unsociable, but patient," police said in 2004, the first time police had linked all the killings to the same suspect.

    Gao Chengyong, 52, was arrested Friday in a grocery store in Baiyin, home to nine of the killings.
    A new round of DNA testing using modern techniques reportedly allowed police to re-examine their evidence and list of suspects

    The suspect in custody
    A man who has been dubbed China’s ‘Jack the Ripper’ for the way he mutilated the bodies of some of the 11 women he killed was reported to have been captured by police almost 30 years after the terrifying murders began.

    Gao Chengyong, aged 52, was detained on Friday in a grocery store he ran with his wife in Baiyin, a city in China’s northwest Gansu province where nine of the killings occurred, the China Daily said.
    Citing the Ministry of Public Security, the newspaper said he had confessed to 11 murders in Gansu and neighbouring Inner Mongolia between 1988 and 2002. An eight-year-old girl was reported to have been among the dead.
    Shanghai based web portal, thepaper.cn, said “the suspect was very cruel, he raped and murdered women, and cut women's reproductive organs
    off.”
    Police finally made a breakthrough when Gao was identified after they detained his uncle in connection with a minor crime.

    Officers collected his DNA and carried out tests which determined that he was a relative of the alleged serial killer, the China Daily said.

    I have spent some time in China and still have some connections there so will be following... Considering the size of the country, China doesn't have many serial killers. The trials are usually quick and sentence is death by firing squad or lethal injection. This is a list of most of them:

    Bai Baoshan: sentenced to 13 years in prison in 1983 for a murder he committed during a failed robbery; later killed 14 people from 1996 to 1997 and executed on 6 May 1998
    Li Wenxian: killed 13 female prostitutes; executed in 1996
    Gong Runbo: found guilty of the murders of six children and teenagers aged between nine and 16 from 2005 to 2006; executed 2007
    Huang Yong: between September 2001 and 2003 killed at least 17 teenage boys; executed in 2003
    Shen Changyin and Shen Changping: found guilty of the murders of 11 prostitutes, sentenced to death
    Wang Qiang: 45 murder victims and 10 rapes; executed on 17 November 2005
    Hua Ruizhou: killed 14 female prostitutes from 1998 to 2001; executed in 2002
    Yang Xinhai: confessed to killing 65 people between 2000 and 2003; executed in 2004
    Zhang Yongming: between March 2008 and April 2012 killed 11; executed in 2013
    Zhou Kehua: former soldier who targeted ATM users; killed 10 people and evaded the law for 8 years, before being killed in 2012 in a shootout with police after a year-long manhunt
