- In 1922 Walburga Oesterreich’s husband Fred Oesterreich was shot and killed supposedly by a burglar in their Los Angeles, Calif. home. Eight years later after being arrested for another crime, Otto Sanhuber confessed to police that he had killed Fred Oesterreich in party with Walburga. Sanhuber stated that he had lived in the attic of the Oesterreich’s home for years in order to carry on an affair with Walburga. In 1930 Sanhuber was put on trial and was convicted of manslaughter. Walburga Oesterreich was tried for murder and conspiracy but her jury ended in deadlock. She was never retried.
