Her
death led to a raid on the home and the arrest of the duo and the
discovery of at least one more murder victim who was killed, stuck into a
deep freeze, thawed out and burned in a stove. Her ashes were later
strewn from a car window.
The
pair – married but divorced and living in the quiet community as
brother and sister – are accused of preying upon lonely hearts across
the country looking for women for Wilfried to wed so they could then
fleece them of their savings.
Once
lured to their squalid home, prosecutors say the women were chained up,
beaten, forced to sleep in a bathtub and turned into domestic slaves.
A 40-strong police murder squad branded the couple ‘The Horrors of Höxter.’
The
terrible secret of the house in Höxter was revealed in April this year
when Susanne F. 41, a divorced woman who answered one of their bogus
adverts, died of a brain hemorrhage resulting from her ill treatment.

Police
said she replied to Wilfried’s small ad looking for a girlfriend and
moved into the house, believing the lie that his ex-wife was his sister.
Immediately she was subjected to savage and sustained abuse.
Ralf
Östermann, the police chief heading up the murder squad codenamed
Bosseborn – after the part of town where their house is situated – said:
‘She was abused for nothing. If the knife was not laid on the correct
side of the plate, that was a trigger for punches, stomping, kicking,
abuse.’
Once she was seen out shopping with her tormentors – totally bald. ‘They pulled out her hair,’ said Östermann.
During
one beating, according to Angelika B. who has turned against Wilfried
since they were arrested in May, she fell and hit her head on a cabinet,
triggering the brain blood clot which would lead to her death.
The
couple, sensing that she was on the brink of death, laid her on the
backseat of their car intending to drive her to her own apartment. But
the car broke down en-route.
Mr Östermann added: ‘The pair called an ambulance apparently because they were overwhelmed by the situation.’
The woman died two hours later in the hospital on April 21. The doctors found bruises all over her body and called the police.

The dead woman, from Bad Gandersheim in the state of Lower Saxony, was found to have met her killer through a small ad.
Her
tormentors were arrested and taken to separate jails where Angelike
laid all the blame at the door of her partner. He has said nothing to
police since his arrest.
The
first victim was a woman, 33, from Lower Saxony named Annika, who met
the accused in the summer of 2013 after he placed a lonely hearts advert
in a newspaper.
She
then moved to Höxter and married Wilfried W. in the autumn of that
year. Police say she was severely abused in a two-month long ordeal
which ended with her death.
Afterwards
her body was kept in a chest freezer before being dismembered with a
chain saw and then burned in the heating stove piece by piece, The ashes
were later scattered from their car window in drives around the region.
And
in an act prosecutor Ralf Meyer described as ‘perfidious,’ Wilfried
texted Annike’s mother on her own mobile phone after he had killed her
to say she had move to Amsterdam ‘but is in good health.’
He said that the case ‘got to’ the experienced officers of the homicide squad.
‘It
was an abyss, what they did up there,’ he said referring to the house
where they lived and killed the strangers who fell into their grasp.
Police
said that the pair took out so many adverts in so many publications
across the whole of Germany that there were only two newspapers that
they did not owe money to. They also trawled for victims with
advertisements placed in Czech newspapers.

The
duo, who both lived off Hartz IV welfare payments, the most meager in
Germany for the long-term jobless, are being held in separate jails.
Angelike
B. has said – and police say they believe her – that she was also
massively abused by Wilfried soon after marrying him in 1999.
Four
years earlier in 1995 he was sentenced to two years in jail in August
1995 for inflicting life-threatening injuries on a woman. Angelike was
given probation.
When
the case received wall-to-wall coverage in Germany a woman came forward
in Berlin to say that she once lived in the house with them, was abused
and badly injured, but allowed to leave.
One
of the crimes they were suspected of is the murder of 21-year-old
Frauke Liebs who vanished from her home 40 miles from Höxter on June 20,
2006 and whose corpse was found in a field on October 20 that year.
‘We are still examining this case to see if her death is linked to this couple,’ added Östermann.
He
added that the duo did not act out of sexual motives, but from a need
‘to exercise power.’ According to his ex-wife, Bochum-born Wilfried W.
was ‘the boss – his word was law.’
They
go on trial on Wednesday at a court in the British army garrison town
of Paderborn where they face charges of murder, kidnapping, abuse and
holding people against their will.
