The murder of Kaufman came as a
climax to a series of burglaries that
aroused the city anc county in the
fall of 1911..On< Novtmoer 10, 1911,
about 4:30 in the morning. Winsoy,
Lutz, Lewzewski and Schmitz enter
ed the baker shop of Kauffir.arf and
asked for some apple pies. After they
received the pies they crowded to
ward the door, preparing to leave
without paying for them. Mrs. Kauff
nfan stamped on th.? floor to attract
the attention of her husband, who
was in the basement working. He
rushed up the cellar steps leading t?;
the sidewalk, but before he could ut
ter a word a revolver shot silenced
him.
The quartet fled and the crimes
ceascd. Nothing was ?ieard of the four
until a few days afterward, when
four young men were arrested at
Petersburg, Va., for highway robbery,
and because of their youth, were
sentenced to 12 years in the peni
tentiary. Sheriff Merkel. then county
detective, went to Richmond and ob
tained confessions from tlie four that j
they were guilty of trie Kauffman I
murder and of various hold-ups.
Numerous attempts were made to
extradite them, but th:? Governor <
Virginia refused to consider the rr.ut
ter. Last March they wc r ? pardon 1 ;
