RIPPER MURDERER CAPTURED, CONFESSES EIGHT CRIMES

Dusseldorf, Germany, May 26.
INS

Peter Kuerten, 47 year old coachman who has confessed to police that he is the so called Ripper Murderer, who terrorized residents here, told police today that he has committed eight murders.

"I wanted to avenge myself on Humanity," he told police. "It would be best to chop off me head immediately."

Previously, he told the authorities that he had a wife from whom he was separated.

Kuerten was arrested Saturday and led officers to the scenes of several of the murders he says he committed.
