Unidentified Wiki

Hamburg John Doe is an elderly man who was the second discovered victim of the Hamburg Rubble Murderer. He was found five days after the first victim was found.


The victim was found by scrap collectors at the Lappenbergsallee in Eimsbüttel, at the top of House No. 2 on January 25, 1947. At first it was speculated the man was a tenant of a landlady, but this was disproven when the missing man contacted her.

Between January to February 1947, four unidentified people-two women, a little girl, and an older man-were found nude and strangled, in Hamburg, Germany. It has been speculated by police all victims were related and the killer, the so-called "Hamburg Rubble Murderer", was a fifth relative. As of today, the case is unsolved and no progress has been made toward identifying the victims.
