Fajsz Husband-Killing Syndicate, Hungary - 1930


FULL TEXT: Budapest, Hungary, Feb. 6 – A new series of poison murders has been discovered in the village of Fajsz, authorities announced today, recalling the mass murders at Theisswinkel and adjacent towns, for which 36 women were put on trial at Szolnock last month.

Five women were arrested at Fajsz, accused of poisoning their husbands. One woman who was strongly suspected of the same crime committed suicide before police could arrest her.
