23 years ago He Was not Stoned

Serial killer Ali Reza Khoshruy Kuran Kordiyeh aka The Tehran Vampire is executed by hanging from a crane at the age of 28 in Tehran, Tehran, Iran.

Twenty thousand spectators turned out for the event chanting "Allahu Akbar" while Kordiyeh received a flogging of 214 lashes from relatives of his victims and then tied to a yellow building crane and lifted, legs kicking, high into the air with a rope around his neck. Relatives of the victims had called for Kordiyeh to be stoned to death. They had also called for his hands to be cut off before execution because he had also been accused of theft.
