Verdict/Urteil:
 
On August 7, 1937, 22-year-old Jean de Koven, an American dancer, was kidnapped from her Paris hotel room and murdered. Following receipt of a note demanding $500 ransom, police identified the killer as Eugen Weidmann, a German immigrant, and the manhunt began in earnest. Traced to a remote villa, Weidmann was arrested following a wild brawl with police. In custody, he readily confessed to killing half a dozen victims for their pocket change or minor ransoms. Tried for murder and convicted on the basis of his own confession, Weidmann was guillotined in Paris on May 18, 1939.
