About Anna Marie Hahn

Anna Marie Hahn was a German-born American serial killer. The youngest of 12 children, as a teenager she had an affair with a Viennese physician, or so she claimed, no records have been found of a Viennese doctor by the name she gave. They had a son she called Oskar (also spelled 'Oscar'). Her scandalized family sent her to America in 1929, while her son remained in Bavaria with her parents. While staying with relatives Max and Anna Doeschel in Cincinnati, she met fellow German immigrant Philip Hahn; they married in 1930. Anna Marie briefly returned to Germany to get Oscar, then the trio set upon life as a family. Hahn allegedly began poisoning and robbing elderly men and women in Cincinnati's German community to support her gambling habit. Ernst Kohler, who died on May 6, 1933, was believed to be her first victim.
