This week it’s back to the world of the grim and unsolved, as Sean takes us through the facts of one of the most chilling unsolved crimes in German history – the Hinterkaifeck murders.
On the night of March 31, 1922, on a remote farm outside of Munich, a family of five and their maid were murdered in cold blood with a pickaxe. Most strangely, their killer appears to have lived on the farm, with the bodies of his victims, for three days after the crime.
Was this the gruesome act of a wandering maniac? A psychopathic robbery gone wrong? Or were some of the skeletons in the Gruber family’s closet coming home to roost in murderous fashion?
