Lee Chun-jae (57), who confessed to a serial murder case in Gyeonggi Province 30 years ago, came to court to watch the movie “Murder Memories,” which deals with his crime, but said that there was not much stirring.
On the afternoon of the 2nd, Lee Chun-jae attended as a witness in the retrial case of Yoon Seong-yeo (53), who flocked to prison as the real criminal of the 8th serial murder held in Suwon District Law, and said, “I saw’memories of murder’ while serving in prison. When Yoon’s lawyer Park Joon-young asked,’How did you feel at that time?’ “I just watched it as a movie. There was no feeling or inspiration.”
Lee Chun-jae stated the motive, process, and result of the crime at the witness stand, but he made a statement to the effect that he did not feel any emotions. Not only for the movie, but also for the report of his crime, “I didn’t live with interest in that. I wasn’t entangled, and I didn’t care at all.”
Even when asked about the motive of the crime, he gave irresponsible answers. ”(Why) I’m not sure either. I still haven’t found a clear answer. Regardless of my will, it was,” he said, and about the process, “I have never planned. There were a lot of things that were just spontaneous,” he said.
Looking back, he said, “I didn’t have any plans, but I was committing a crime, regardless of will, like a fire moth looking for fire.” Remarks such as “just a natural process” and “rape when stopped, and murder when progressed” flowed out of his mouth without hesitation.
In addition, he argued, “I have never thought of satisfying my sexual desire” when asked, “Most of the murders occurred after sex crimes, but was it not because of sexual desire?” As for the reason for the stocking straps and underwear gagged, there was no other reason, except that the straps were intended to prevent rebellion, and the gagged to prevent yelling. She said, “The thing that she put on her head was to keep me from seeing.”
Throughout the Witness Newspaper, Lee Chun-jae responded subconsciously to answers such as “I did it unconsciously” ”There was no clear purpose” ”I left it after the crime” ”I was not interested in the media report” ”I never thought about the shock (to the victim’s family)”. Poured out.
At the same time, he said to the victims, including Yoon Seong-yeo, who had served unfairly because of himself, “I repent and repent,” and said, “I hope the victims and their families find peace of mind.”
On this day, the court in charge did not allow Lee Chun-jae to shoot inside the court because he was’witness status’, so the current appearance of Lee Chun-jae was not disclosed to the media.
The 8th serial murder of Lee Chun-jae took place on September 16, 1988 in Jinan-ri, Taean-eup, Hwaseong-gun. This is the case where Park Mo-yang (then 13 years old) was found dead in her own house.
Yoon, who was sentenced to life imprisonment in the first trial for being convicted of the incident in the past, was later commuted and released in August 2009, after 20 years of imprisonment.
In September of last year, Lee Chun-jae confessed that all 10 Hwaseong incidents including the 8th incident and 4 other murders were committed by him, and Yoon requested a reconsideration of the Suwon District Law on November 13 last year.
