On December 21 1924 Denke was arrested after attacking a man at his house with an axe. Police search Denke's home and found human flesh in huge jars of pickling vinegar. A ledger contained the details of 30 people Denke had murdered and cannibalized over the years. It is thought he even sold the flesh of his victims at the Breslau market.
The day after his arrest, Denke hung himself in his cell, meaning his exact motives can only be guessed at.
