Huang Yong (Chinese: ??; pinyin: Huáng Y?ng; November 18, 1974 – December 26, 2003) was a Chinese serial killer accused of murdering 17 teenage boys (although he is suspected of 25 murders) between September 2001 and 2003.[1]

In September, 2001 Huang started to lure young people, from video halls, Internet cafes and video arcades to his house by offering to recommend them for well-paid jobs or to fund their schooling or sightseeing tours. In his house, Yong drugged the youths and raped them after strangling them with a rope.

In November 2003, a 16 year-old boy named Zhang Liang went to the police. The investigators at first were not convinced of Liang’s story but the boy claimed that Yong had invited him to his apartment by offering him a job. Once he got there, Yong tried to strangle him and that he went into unconsciousness three times. After, when the young boy awoke, Yong said to him “I killed at least 25 people. You’re number 26″ but Liang escaped and reported him to the police.[2]

Finally, the police believed Liang’s story and arrested Yong who was sentenced to death on December 9, 2003 and executed by a firing squad on December 26, 2003.

The motive of the Yong’s crimes is on this phrase “I’ve always wanted to be an assassin since I was a kid, but I never had the chance,” said Huang. [3]
