The Daily Dispatch: December 13, 1862., [Electronic resource], A fearful Chapter in criminal history. (search)
horses galloped on to the village of Hackleburg, drawing behind them the vehicle containing the lifeless body of the merchant.--Maasch, who confessed to this murder, was delivered up at Sodlin to the authorities engaged in investigating the Baumgart murders. In the course of the trial not less than one hundred and forty witnesses were examined, and great numbers of depositions were read. Karl Maasch confessed to having committed the thirteen murders himself, and sought to have his fellow-prisoners acquitted on this ground. If this request seems like the one bright spot in the conduct of the chief criminal, yet it was of no avail against the proofs adduced, that three of his comrades at least had assisted him in one or more of his numerous murders. Karl and Martin Maasch, their mother, and Liebig, were found guilty of murder and robbery, and condemned to death; while the fifth prisoner, Kohlschmidt, who was convicted of robbery only, escaped with several years' imprisonment.
