  • Friedrich Heinrich Karl "Fritz" Haarmann was a German serial killer, known as the Butcher of Hanover and the Vampire of Hanover who committed the sexual assault, murder, mutilation and dismemberment of a minimum of 24 boys and young men between 1918 and 1924 in Hanover, Germany. Described by the judge at his trial as being "forever degraded as a citizen," Haarmann was found guilty of 24 of the 27 murders for which he was tried and sentenced to death by beheading in December, 1924. He was subsequently executed in April, 1925. Haarmann became known as the Butcher of Hanover due to the extensive mutilation and dismemberment committed upon his victims' bodies and such titles as the Vampire of Hanover and the Wolf Man because of his preferred murder method of biting through his victims' throats.
