    Background: 1,000 separate items taken from his victims were found in the room of Max Gufler over his garage and in the room of his 'lady friend' Miss Juhn. Gufler now being dubbed in the Austrian press as progressing from 'small wedding swindler to bestial mass murderer' confessed to the killing of one man and four women. He said he had giver them brandy and sleeping pills and had thrown them into the river.

    Strange fact in these murders is that the police have declared each of the four women victims 'suicide'.

    Gufler said he committed these crimes to help keep up the hire-purchase payments on his car, a luxury DKW.

    The police refused to allow Visnews cameraman to film Gufler.
