On this day in 1922, the notorious Hinterkaifeck murders occurred at a rural farm about 43 miles north of Munich. On the night of  March 31, after six months of unsettling noises and strange footprints between the woods and the family’s barn,  the family was lured one by one into the barn, where they were murdered with a mattock. The bodies of the maid and the youngest child were found in the attic of the house. Evidence suggests that the killer remained on the property for several days as smoke from the hearth was witnessed, and there was evidence of meals being prepared in the kitchen.
