Driven To Kill By Hatred For Women

SOUTH Korean police last night said they had arrested a 34-year-old man suspected of killing at least 19 people in what could be the country's biggest case of serial murder.
Seoul police chief Huh Joon-young said initial investigations had implicated the suspect in 15 cases of murder committed in less than a year. The victims were mainly women, but also included elderly people from rich districts of the capital.
He said the suspect, Yoo Young-chul, had confessed to the crime spree, which had apparently been motivated by a hatred for women and the rich. "Yoo felt hatred towards women after getting divorced and also believed poverty was the reason for his difficulties," Mr Huh said.
South Korea has a relatively low crime rate. Five women died in the last known serial murder case in April 2002, the Yonhap news agency said. Yoo, released from prison last September after serving time for robbery and rape, is suspected of killing an elderly college professor and his wife in an affluent Seoul district in the same month.
The suspect is believed to have then shifted focus to target masseuses after breaking up with a girlfriend early this year, police said.
Police arrested Yoo early on Thursday during a search for a missing masseuse. He later escaped but was re-arrested on Friday, Yonhap said. He is the father of an 11-year-old boy.
Investigators unearthed the bodies of 11 women buried in shallow graves near a temple in northern Seoul.
Yonhap said each of the women's bodies had been cut up into more than a dozen pieces, while the elderly victims had been found in their homes, beaten to death with a hammer.
