Wang Qiang (simplified Chinese: 王强; traditional Chinese: 王強; pinyin: Wáng Qiáng) (16 January 1975 - 17 November 2005) was a Chinese serial killer from Budayuan Town, Kuandian Manchu Autonomous County, Liaoning, China[1] and one of the most notorious murderers and rapists in Chinese history.

Wang grew up in the small village of Kaiyuan, Liaoning city. His father was abusive, addicted to drinking and gambling, and denied Wang the chance to enter school.[2]

Wang committed his first murder on 22 January 1995. He was arrested on 14 July 2003. Official records show he was convicted of 45 murders and 10 rapes. Some young girls were raped post-mortem.

Wang was sentenced to death for the murders and executed in November 2005.[3]
