All they wanted to do was chat online or even play video games in the arcade. They would be told that a new game was being made, God Riding on a Wooden Horse. Little did they know that someone was there waiting to lure them to their death.
Huang Yong was born to a pig farmer in Henan Province, China in 1974. He only spent a short time in the military. After that he spent most of his time in Southern China as a farm worker.
When the poor boys would go to Yong's house, they would be tied to his torture device called the "intelligent hobby horse" which looked like a noodle machine. The boys then would be drugged, raped and then strangled. Most of the times Yong would only strangle the boys until they passed out. He would then wake them up again to rape them and torture them. He would continue this pattern until he got bored. He also would perform posthumous rape.
When he was bored, he would strangle the boys until they died and cut up their body. He then buried their bodies in the ground around his house. He would make sure to keep their belts as souvenirs. He told the courts that he didn't go after women because he wouldn't be considered a "hero"
His last victim, a 16 year-old boy named Zhang Liang, convinced Yong to let him go after being raped, strangled brought back and raped over and over again. The police almost didn't belive Liang's story. Liang said that Yong told him he already killed 25 boys and that he was the 26th. Cops finally believed what Liang was telling them and they arrested Yong. They found 8 bodies when they searched around Yong's home.
Yong stated he did in fact kill 25 boys. He was sentenced to death on December 9, 2003 and executed a single shot to the back of the head on December 26, 2003.
