Serial rapist-murderer Satarō Fukiage (吹上 佐太郎) is executed
Fukiage’s first victim was an 11-year-old girl who was raped and murdered when Fukiage was still a minor. Because of his age, he was sentenced to life in prison rather than face execution.
He was released in 1922, though in 1924 he was arrested for molesting a 4-year-old but was released soon. Between June 1923 and April 1924, Fukiage raped and murdered 6 girls between 11 to 16 years old. He also reportedly raped an additional 93 girls whom he did not murder.
Before his execution, Fukiage wrote a book called The Street (娑婆) in which he requested parents take care of their children.
