Foundling Kaspar Hauser aka The Wild Child dies of a stab wound suffered three days earlier at the age of 21 in Ansbach, Bayern, Germany.


On 14 December 1833 Hauser came home with a deep wound in his left breast. He said that he was lured to the Ansbach Hofgarten and that a stranger stabbed him there while giving him a bag. When policeman Herrlein searched the Hofgarten he found a small violet purse containing a pencilled note in 'Spiegelschrift' (mirror writing). The message read "Hauser wird es euch ganz genau erzählen können, wie ich aussehe, und wo her ich bin. Den Hauser die Mühe zu ersparen will ich es euch selber sagen, woher ich komme _ _ Ich komme von von _ _ _ der Baierischen Gränze _ _ Am Fluße _ _ _ _ _ Ich will euch sogar noch den Namen sagen: M. L. Ö."
