China’s Jack the Ripper caught ‘after murdering and mutilating 11 women’

Pic shows: A file photo of Gao Chengyong.nnA man wanted for raping and murdering almost a dozen girls and women - including an 8-year-old girl - has finally been caught after 28 years on the run.nnThe 52-year-old suspect named Gao Chengyong is said to have claimed his victims between 1988 and 2002, during which time he is believed to have killed no fewer than 11 people.nnGao, who allegedly committed most of his crimes in Baiyin City, in north-western China¿s Gansu Province, was finally arrested this week after police received a tip-off from a local resident who saw the suspect at the shops.nnThe alleged killer, a married father of two, admitted to the killings in Baiyin and Baotou, a city in neighbouring Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region, with his confessions officially bringing an end to a man hunt that lasted nearly three decades.nnBaiyin police first started looking for Gao when his first victim, a 23-year-old woman, was found murdered in her home in May 1988, having been stabbed 26 times.nnThe subsequent killings all followed a similar pattern, with the victims being girls or young women who lived alone.nnAccording to reports, the victims tended to dress in red and their bodies were found mutilated or in some cases even missing limbs.nnFollowing extensive investigations in Baiyin, China¿s Ministry of Public Security finally joined the case in 2001, collecting large amounts of fingerprints and other DNA evidence before announcing a 200,000 RMB (22,819 GBP) bounty for information as to the suspect¿s whereabouts.nnAccording to authorities, every single male permanent resident in Baiyin had their fingerprints tested by police, but none turned out to match the killer¿s.nnThis is because while Gao is thought to have mainly operated in the city, his household was registered in a village outside Gansu¿s provincial capital Lanzhou, where fingerprints were not required.nnHe lived between his village home and Baiyin City, but avoided any procedures that would require his fingerprints, successfully avoiding capture for 28 years.nnGao is now awaiting trial and faces 11 murder charges, each of which is punishable by a sentence ranging from 10 years¿ imprisonment to death, according to Chinese criminal law.nn(ends)
Police believe they have captured a serial killer dubbed China’s ‘Jack the Ripper’ for the way he mutilated several of his 11 female victims, state-run media reported Monday, nearly three decades after the first murder.
