Abstract

Karl Ruef, a 32 year-old, Catholic, married father of 5 was arrested after being named an accomplice in multiple robberies and break-ins by Franz Ignaz Kretz during Kretz's interrogation by the Inquisition. Ruef was found guilty and sentenced to beheading by the sword. In deference to his innocent wife and children, Ruef's body was allowed to be buried in hallowed ground.
