Most of us know Hannibal Lecter, the brilliant cannibal from the movie "Silence of the Lambs" and "Red Dragon". The audience was so fascinated by this psychotic serial killer that more movies and a series followed.

But unless Hannibal Lecter serial killers exist in reality and they are the real monsters. They are the bogeymen (and a few bogeywomen).
Unlike the common murderer who always has a choice to commit the crime or not to commit serial killers are either compelled to kill or put such a low value of life that killing a human being is like swatting a fly. The reason can be found usually in a mental disorder.They kill because a part of their mind tells them to do that. This leads to a disturbing modus operandi and the public generally loves to get information about all the gruesome details.

Usually the stories about the most notorious serial killers are coming from Western countries which can be attributed to the media because it knows that stories written in blood sell the best. There we can find Ed Gein, Ted Bundy, Frith Haarmann,...


But even in other place of the world they hunt like Andrej Chikatilo in Russia who raped, mutilated and murdered over 50 women and boys or Pedro Alonzo Lopez from Colombia who raped and murdered between 50 and 300 girls in South and Middle America (it is difficult to come up with straight numbers since he travelled a lot and did not counted his victims), Sipho Thwala from South Africa who was convicted for the murder of 19 women.


What also not many realize that these people are existing since a long time. Jack the Ripper wasn't the first serial killer by a long shot but just the media at that time was not that good.


Now I am living in a country with about 1.3 billion people and since I also like to watch series like Luther and other crime stories but also horror movies especially regarding these monsters (zombies, werewolves and vampires are fictional) I am curious which serial killers are and were around in China

chiang kai shek was the most voracious serial killer in Chinese history.
If capitalism promotes innovation and creativity then why aren't scientists and artists the richest people in a capitalist nation?

Actually Chinese law does not recognize serial killers as it clearly stipulates that to kill you need a motive.

This is why there are no famous Chinese serial killers.

However there were quite a few... but they all had a motive (greed, jealousy, etc...).

What about Xinhai Yang who killed about 67 people and raped 27 women? He testified that killing people is nothing special for him andd he did it to get revenge at society.

From Wiki:
Wang Qiang (January 16, 1975 - November 17, 2005) was a man from Budayuan Town, Kuandian Manchu Autonomous County, Liaoning province,[1] and one of the most notorious serial killers and rapists China has seen for decades. When he was a child of a small village of Kaiyuan city of Liaoning, his father was addicted to drinking and gambling, denying him the chance of entering school. He committed first murder on Jan 22nd,1995 and was caught on July 14, 2003. Official record shows there are 45 victims murdered by him and 10 rape victims. Some girls were raped after being killed. He never lost sleep or appetite after killing.
