In China, authorities have captured an alleged serial killer accused of killing 11 females from 1988 to 2002.

Called China's "Jack the Ripper," Gao Chengyong, 52, reportedly admitted to the murders after he was arrested at a grocery store run by his wife in Baiyin, China, the country's Ministry of Public Security said, according to BBC News.

Authorities charged that the suspect sought out young women wearing red, one as young as 8 years old. The suspect reportedly followed them home where he raped and then killed them.

Agence France-Presse, citing Beijing Youth Daily, wrote that the suspect would cut the throat of his victims and mutilate their bodies, including removing their reproductive organs.

"The suspect has a sexual perversion and hates women," police said in 2004, according to AFP.

The news service said there were no explanations as to why the killings stopped in 2002.

In one case, victim Cui Jinping was found mutilated in her apartment.

"Twenty-two knife wounds were found on her body, clothes (were) stripped off on her lower part. Two breasts, two hands and two ears were gone," Shanghai-based website thepaper.cn reported, according to The Telegraph.

Police posted a $30,000 award for information leading to the arrests of the murders in December 2004.

The murders happened in the northern China province of Gansu and the Inner Mongolia autonomous region.

China Daily reported the ministry's Criminal Investigation Bureau started a new investigation using new technologies to re-examine DNA and biological evidence back in March. Through that investigation, Gao was linked to the murders where DNA was collected.

The break in the case came when Gao's uncle was arrested in Baiyin for a minor crime, but his DNA was tested and showed the serial killer was related to him.
