Serial Killer Known as China's 'Jack the Ripper' Executed

The killer targeted young women wearing red and followed them home, where he would rob, rape, and murder them.

Most of the attacks took place around Baiyin, a city of 1.7 million in northeastern Gansu.

Notorious serial killer Gao Chengyong was executed Thursday morning according to the official Weibo account of the people's intermediate court of Baiyin City, Gansu Province.

Gao Chengyong, 53, was wanted in connection to the killing of 11 women between May 1988 and February 2002 in Gansu Province and neighboring Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region.

The court announced on China's version of Twitter, Weibo, that the sentence had been carried out.

Many of his victims were wearing red when their mutilated bodies were found. Gao's youngest victim was eight years old.

In a statement released after his sentencing, the court denounced Gao's "perverted desire to dishonour and sully corpses" and described his actions as "despicable." .

However, Coachella organizer Goldenvoice was not willing to alter the stage for Ye's set, so they mutually agreed to call off his performance.

Police had been hunting Gao for years.

Detectives linked the crimes as far back as 2004 and offered a reward of 200,000 yuan ($30,000) for information leading to an arrest.

'He's reclusive and unsociable, but patient, ' according to the police profiling at the time.

After finding similarities to Gao's DNA they tested him too, and got a match.

Gao eluded police until a distant relative was arrested for bribery, allowing investigators to hone in on him as a result of DNA evidence. At least three of Jack the Ripper's victims had internal organs cut out too. Those killings have never been solved.

Numerous individuals have been accused of being Jack the Ripper, who murdered five women in London's East End in 1888.

Other suspects include Montague John Druitt, a Dorset-born barrister. First is Sir William Gull, the royal physician. He had a surgery in Whitechapel at the time.
