In the early 1920s, on a Friday night in late March, a German family and their new maid were brutally killed in their rural and isolated home. Law enforcement officials interviewed several people – both locals and transients – in an effort to find the person or people responsible for the shocking murders of six people. However, nearly a century later, no one has ever been charged with the horrifying killings that occurred at the farm in Hinterkaifeck, a small Bavarian homestead. Consequently, the Hinterkaifeck farm murders remain unsolved, making the savage and bloody massacre one of Germany’s oldest unsolved murders of a family.
