Abstract

Two songs written about a double murder. One is written from the murderer's point of view. Two men planned their escape from prison. Friedrich Cörper used a hammer to beat two domestic employees of the prison warden before cutting their throats. Johann Paul Georg Lober, the second prisoner, was with Cörper and knew of his plans but did not take part in the murders. Both men robbed the premises then escaped only to be captured and taken into custody a short while later. Cörper was sentenced to beheading with a sword while Lober was sentenced to 8 years in prison.
