South Korean media reported on the 18th that the South Korean police confirmed the suspects of continuous homicides in Huacheng, South Korea, through DNA comparison. The suspect, aged 50, was sentenced to life imprisonment for killing and discarding his wife's sister after rape in 1994 and is now in prison. South Korean media reported that due to exceeding the time limit, the name of Huacheng murderer could not be punished. South Korean media also released photos of the suspect in prison. "Memories of murder" is adapted from the case.
From 1986 to 1991, 10 women were injured by serial murderers, and one survived.
The police also said that among the 10 cases, at present, the DNA identification results of 2 cases are consistent. The suspect is currently sentenced to life imprisonment for killing and discarding the body after raping his wife's sister in 1994.
Today, Korean media reported that the murderer of Huacheng chain homicide, which is the prototype of fengjunhao's classic film murder memories and has not been solved, was finally arrested, and the suspect's DNA is completely consistent with that of two of the ten cases. However, according to the Korean media, since the eighth of the ten cases was an imitation crime of others, whether the remaining seven cases were related to the murderer still needs further investigation.
According to the South Korean police on the 18th, when the local police department in southern Gyeonggi recently re investigated the Huacheng chain homicide, it found a clue that a who was serving his sentence in prison was the real murderer. Through the DNA left in the victim's underwear in the evidence at the crime scene, the police entrusted the National Academy of scientific investigation and research to conduct DNA analysis, and found the suspect characteristics consistent with the DNA.
The film "memories of murder" is based on the serial murder cases in Huacheng in the 1980s. With its profound social significance and high completion as a commercial film, it is regarded as the masterpiece of Korean films.
It is understood that the Huacheng serial homicide is a continuous rape and murder case in South Korea. The incident occurred in a village near Huacheng County, Gyeonggi province from September 15, 1986 to April 3, 1991. At that time, 10 women were injured and only one survived. The murderous process is almost always kidnapping first, then rape, and finally strangled. The case caused a sensation in South Korea at that time. Although about 2.05 million police and troops were mobilized, about 21000 suspects were searched and 570 groups of DNA, 180 hairs and 40116 fingerprints were identified, nothing was found. The whole case was terminated on April 2, 2006 because it exceeded the legal prosecution period.
According to Korean media reports, although the police have confirmed the murderer, the prisoner will not be punished by the corresponding law due to the end of the prosecution period. The police are seriously discussing the public's request for information about prisoners. The prosecution period of homicide cases in South Korea is generally 15 years, that is, beyond this time, even if the criminals are caught, they cannot be prosecuted and punished. However, after the release of the Korean film "melting pot" in 2011, many people were angry and petitioned qingwatai, causing the government to change the national law and cancel the saying of "15-year public prosecution period". However, when Huacheng chain homicide still exists during the public prosecution period, it must still be in accordance with the provisions of that year.
In addition, this was also found by the South Korean police citing some of the latest comparison methods. The DNA was completely restored by technical means. After comparison, it was found that it was completely consistent with the DNA of a man in prison. Unfortunately, as mentioned in the film, once the prosecution period is over, the murderer cannot be investigated for responsibility, and therefore the penalty of the murderer cannot be increased.
