The case of „Maria Katharina Wächtler“ is one of the most exciting of the 18th century.

She was accused of killing and dismembering her husband in their apartment. His body parts were found wrapped in packages all the way to Lübeck.

The evidence was overwhelming but Maria Katharina Wächtler refused to confess. To get her confession she was brutally tortured for two years and the media and the public were delighted by her suffering. Until today it is not clear if she had killed her husband. But one thing is for sure – She is back and she is looking for revenge.

Can you escape her furious ghost?
