The Mauerova Family:
The Mauerova’s are a family of cult members and cannibals from the Czech Republic. Klara (the “loving” mother) and Katerina (the “doting” auntie) and other family members belonged to a bizarre cult, the Grail Movement. This was not good news for Ondrej and Jakub (Klara’s children). These two boys were designated to become slaves to the cult and their wills had to be broken.
Over an 8 month period, relatives and fellow cult members participated in despicable acts against two brothers. The actual details of what a mother allowed to be done to her young children are extremely disturbing. Cigarettes were stubbed out on the boys’ flesh. Belts were used to whip them. The boys were almost drowned. They were sexually abused. They were kept in cages or handcuffed to tables for long periods. They were forced to stand in their own urine for days on end. The boys were also forced to cut themselves with knives. Forced to by their own relatives!
Ondrej, was subjected to even worse torture. He was chained and locked up in the cellar for six months, gagged to stop his screaming. And Ondrej had good reason to scream. Klara and Katerina actually skinned one of his arms. The raw flesh was forced down Ondrej’s throat and some of the family members feasted on it too.
By a remarkable chain of events, the truth about the Mauerova family was discovered on May 10, 2007 when horrific images on a baby monitor (which they had installed in their house to view the crimes) were picked up by a neighbour who had the exact same monitor. Instead of seeing their own child softly sleeping away, they saw an image of a naked, bound and gagged young boy. The horrified owner of the new baby monitor immediately called the police, having recognized the boy as being his neighbour’s son Ondrej.
A total of six people were eventually convicted.
A bloody bed sheet from the murders of Kimberly, Kristen Colette Macdonald. Colette was pregnant with her third child at the time of her murder, she had been beaten, both her arms were broken and she had been stabbed 37 times with a knife and her ice pick. Her two children, Kristen, aged 5, and Kimberly, aged 2, had been found in their own bedrooms and had both received similar beatings and had been stabbed multiple times.
Jeffrey MacDonald, Colette’s husband and father to their children, was also found wounded next to his wife. He had minor bruising and a single, small stab wound that collapsed his lung. MacDonald would be found guilty of murdering his wife and children, as his originally story about being overcome by three armed assailants did not add up.
