Karl Maasch was, it appears, the leader of a band of wretches, consisting of himself, his brother Martin, his mother, an old but active woman, and two laborers named Liebeg and Kohlschmidt; and all these persons were placed at the bar. Their burglaries and murders had for five years kept in almost continual alarm the population around Sodlin, Pyritz, Lansburg and Stargardt. One of the most horrifying atrocities which they committed was on a night in May, 1861, when Karl Maasch and some of his band broke forcibly into the house of a miller named Baumgart, at Carsdorf, murdered the miller and his wife, his daughter, two sons, and a maid, and robbed the house of everything that was portable and valuable, including, it is believed, a considerable sum of money. The murders, too, were committed in a manner so atrocious as to arouse the population into a frenzy, and the most persevering exertions were made to obtain a clue to the guilty parties.
