THE STAMMHEIM DEATHS. ‘Suicide’ Most Foul

£1.50

On the morning of October 18, 1977 the international news media were dominated by reports about the reported suicide of Jan Carl Raspe, Gudrun Ensslin and Andreas Baader, and of the attempted suicide of Irmgard Möller. The evening’s television and radio news brought more of the same. “Three suicides — a signal for new terror?” reported the front page of Die Welt, one of the largest daily newspapers in Germany; “Hostages free — Suicides in Stammheim” read the headlines in the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung; “Three Baader-Meinhof prisoners commit suicide” appeared sprawled across the front page of the Westfälische Rundschau; and the version in the Westdeutsche Allgemeine Zeitung was “Suicide: Baader, Raspe, Ensslin.” Suicide or extrajudicial murder? This report examines the known facts of this still unresolved mystery.
