The police's re-investigation of the mass murders that occurred mainly in Hwaseong, Gyeonggi-do in the 1980s and 1990s, which remained the worst long-term unsolved crimes in Korea, came to an end in a year. 

The police suspected that Lee Chun-jae, a certain woman, murdered 14 women and committed sexual assault and robbery against nine other women. 

Most of the murder victims were also killed after sexual assault. The South Gyeonggi Provincial Police Agency today (2nd) announced the results of the investigation into the serial murder of Lee Chun-jae. 

Below is the full text of the police announcement. 

Yong-Jae Bae / Head of the Gyeonggi-do South District Police Agency

We will announce the results of the investigation into the serial murder case of Lee Chun-jae.

Before the announcement of the investigation, I pray for the blessings of the victims of the victims of the brutal crimes of Chun-Jae Lee, and give deep condolences to the families.

In addition, Yun Mo, who had been imprisoned for 20 years as a criminal, and his family, and all those who were damaged by the police's unreasonable investigation, borrowed this position and bowed their heads.

First of all, this is the specific theft and investigation of the criminal.

The police have kept the investigation records and evidence to verify the truth even after the completion of the statute of limitations in 2006.

At the time of the incident, DNA was not detected, but due to the development of DNA analysis technology, there was a case where DNA was detected even after a long period of time. I was informed that the DNA of Lee Chun-jae in prison was detected.

After specifying Lee Chun-jae, the head of the second division was headquartered, and a total of 57 investigation headquarters, including the undisputed investigation team, wide-ranging investigation team, victim protection team, statement analysis team, legal review team, and external experts, organized the investigation.

This is whether the confession process of Chunjae Lee and the conviction and credibility of the confession.

At the first interview on September 18, 2019, Lee Chun-jae denied the crime, but after recognizing that DNA detection and parole were impossible, he confessed to 14 murders and 34 rapes since the fourth interview on September 24, 2019. .

Lee Chun-jae made an arbitrary statement, relying solely on his memory, without giving any explanation or data for an individual event and not knowing which DNA was detected in which event.

In terms of the content of the statement, the time flow in the crime process is natural, and the detailed explanation of the situation and the crime process at the time is abundant, and the result of the analysis was found to be highly reliable with the statements directly experienced by the victim and the crime scene.

In five major murder cases, DNA, the scientific evidence, was detected to support the truthfulness of the entire confession of Lee Chun-jae.

This is a comprehensive judgment on Lee Chun-jae's serial crimes.

A total of 14 murders confessed by Lee Chun-Jae have occurred since the entire military in 1986 in time, and the location and location of birth, school, work, etc. are confirmed. There is.

Of these, five murders have been over 30 years, but DNA was detected in the evidence, making it clear that Lee Chun-Jae was committed. Nine murders without DNA were also recognized, and the confessiveness and credibility were fully recognized. It contains a lot of information that only the criminal can know, such as reasonably explaining the situation that was overlooked at the time, and the core part of the statement is consistent with past investigation records.

Throughout the 14 confessional murder cases, the crime method was partially or more evolved, so 14 murder cases were confirmed as serial murders by Lee Chun-jae.

The confession of 34 confessed cases was also a series of crimes tied to a series of murders because the time and region coincide with the time and region of the serial murders and the similarity of the crime method, and it is judged that Lee Chun-Jae confessed his actual crime.

However, only nine rape cases with sufficient evidence were confirmed as crimes by Lee Chun-jae.

The remaining 25 cases of rape are judged to be the actual crimes of Lee Chun-jae, but the specificity of the statement is lower than that of the murder case and there are many topographical changes from the time of the occurrence, making it difficult to specify the exact date and time of the crime, and not reporting any damage due to the social atmosphere at the time. There were many cases and the victim was not able to reveal additional charges for reasons such as not wanting to make a statement.

The following are Lee Chun-jae's psychological characteristics and motive for crime

As a result of comprehensively reviewing all the materials, including semi-structured interviews, psychological tests, statements and behavioral characteristics analysis, and psychopath evaluation of profilers convened from across the country to ensure objectivity, Lee Chun-jae is an introverted character and plays a leading role in his life After failing to do so, it was the first time in the military that he experienced a sense of accomplishment and a subjective role, and it was analyzed that he started committing sexual crimes to express his loss of leadership in a stress-stressed dissatisfaction due to his free and monotonous life after the military service. .

Even though he continued to commit sexual crime and murder, he was unable to feel any emotional changes such as guilt, leading to serial murder while murdering according to his emotional state, gradually becoming more brutal, and even evolving into a form of sadistic crime.

In the early days of the investigation, Lee Chun-jae also appeared to reflect on the victims, saying that he was sorry, but he showed a dual, self-centered attitude by passing on the cause of the crime to the victims and worrying only about his health and prison life.

In addition, the psychopath tendency was evident, such as not being able to empathize with the victim's pain and suffering at all, and continuously showing off his crime and presence and wanting to receive the attention of the media and others.

Summarizing the results of the above investigation, it is judged that Lee Chun-Jae's motive for committing a crime was a sadistic form of sexual instrumentation of women in order to resolve their desires and to express their internal dissatisfaction.
