Yang Xinhai (Chinese: 杨新海) (July 29, 1968 – February 14, 2004), also known as Wang Ganggang, Yang Zhiya, and Yang Liu, was a Chineseserial killer who confessed to committing 65 murders and 23 rapes between 1999 and 2003, and was sentenced to death and executed for 67. He was dubbed the "Monster Killer" by the media. He is the most prolific serial killer China has seen.

Biography

Yang was born on July 29, 1968 in Zhengyang County, Zhumadian, Henan Province, China. His family was one of the poorest in their village. The youngest of four children, Yang was clever but introverted. He dropped out of school in 1985, at age 17, and refused to return home, instead traveling around China and working as a hired laborer.

Crimes

In 1988 and 1991, Yang was sentenced to labor camps for theft in Xi'an, Shaanxi and Shijiazhuang, Hebei.[4] In 1996, he was sentenced to five years in prison for attempted rape in Zhumadian, Henan and released in 1999.[4][8]
Yang's killings took place between 1999 and 2003 in the provinces of Anhui, Hebei, Henan and Shandong. At night, he would enter his victims' homes, and kill all of the occupants—mainly farmers—with axes, hammers and shovels, sometimes killing entire families. Each time he wore new clothes and large shoes.[8][9][10][11]
In October 2002, Yang killed a father and a six-year-old girl with a shovel and raped a pregnant woman, who survived the attack with serious head injuries.[3]

Arrest, trial and execution

Yang was detained on November 3, 2003 after acting suspiciously during a routine police inspection of entertainment venues in Cangzhou, Hebei. Police took him in for questioning and discovered that he was wanted for murder in four provinces. As news of his arrest and crimes spread, the media dubbed him the "Monster Killer".
Shortly after he was arrested, Yang confessed to 65 murders, 23 rapes and five attacks causing serious injury: 49 murders, 17 rapes and five attacks in Henan; eight murders and three rapes in Hebei; six murders and two rapes in Anhui; and two murders and one rape in Shandong. Police also matched his DNA with that found at several crime scenes. Later it was discovered that Xinhai contracted HIV virus from one of his victims.
On February 1, 2004, Yang was found guilty of 67 murders and 23 rapes, and sentenced to death in Luohe City Intermediate People's Court, Henan. At the time of his sentencing, official Chinese media believed he had carried out China's longest and grisliest killing spree. Yang was executed on February 14, 2004 by shooting.

Motive

According to some media reports at the time of his arrest, Yang's motive for the killings was revenge against society as a result of a break up. Allegedly his girlfriend had left him because of his previous sentences for theft and rape. Later media reports claimed that his enjoyment of robbery, rape and murder was the motive.
While Yang never formally provided a motive, he was quoted as saying:
"When I killed people I had a desire. This inspired me to kill more. I don't care whether they deserve to live or not. It is none of my concern...I have no desire to be part of society. Society is not my concern."

My gift to you, a Nightmare of terror
Busy little buggar now wasn't he? I find in hard to believe that he only killed for 4 years. I would love it if our justice system worked this fast. This guy was convicted in '03 and dead by '04. I wish the US could start doing this and stop this 25 years on death row bull shit. Good thread, I have never heard of this guy and makes me glad to know I am not one that would be on his menu !

Yes! There's something our useless fucking politicians could learn from China. And I'd put money on them getting the right culprit more than our judicial systems!

I totally agree about getting rid of these monsters fast. I mean, there's no way this MF is gonna be set free and, hopefully, psychiatrists and psychologists will figure out there's nothing to learn from these people. They're compulsive liars except for the extremely egotisical. Keep 'em alive 'til they cough up some info on the vics and when it becomes apparent they're just playing games slip 'em the needle. Here's a thought. Until we develop a more streamlined and expeditiousm process for enacting death sentences, why shouldn't we get something for the money we shell out in taxes to house and feed these bastards. I say put them on display, just like an animal in a zoo. Keep it accessible 7 days a week, no respite for even one day not even holidays. Behind their glass wall make them live every day with people watching them eat, shit, try to sleep; all the activities that other people get to do privately. In the night, light it brightly and put it on closed-circuit TV so all the prisoners and guards can enjoy the show. The loser will be out of his mind and begging for death in no time.

Wow, what a vision you have there! I hate the fact that they can keep themselves alive longer if they dribble out information. Fuck that! Get what you can and shoot them fuckers in the face! We have DNA now and all kinds of evidence collecting methods, so if there is a question after the fuck dies then the evidence should point out the killer, wheather he is alive or dead. Just shoot them no good for nothing fucking fuck heads!
