In March 2005, in the hard-line Islamic State of Iran, a serial killer who hunted children was publicly executed in front of a large crowd. Known to the Iranian people as the "Tehran Desert Vampire", Mohammed Bijeh stalked the dusty streets of Pakdasht looking for his young victims who were lured away with the help of his accomplice, Ali Baghi. The children were then either poisoned or knocked out, sexually assaulted and then buried in shallow graves. He would claim the motivation for the murders was his own abuse at the hands of others and he showed little remorse for his crimes. Bijeh would confess to police that if he had not been captured, he would have killed 100 children.
