He confessed to terrible crimes. Over the course of twenty-five years, Stumpp said, he murdered and partially consumed fourteen children and two pregnant women, as well as drank the blood of all sorts of local livestock.

His first victums were livestock. The other farmers suspected wolves were responsible, but this was not the case.

"For many years, farmers around Bedburg were mystified by the strange deaths of some of their cows. Day after day for many weeks, they would find cattle dead in the pastures, ripped open as if by some savage animal."
He soon advanced to murdering women and children.

"Some even began to fear a more devious creature - a werewolf, who could walk among them unsuspected as a man, then transform into a wolf to satisfy its hunger."

Stumpp claimed that the Devil had given him a belt made of wolf pelt, and when he put it on he transformed into a werewolf.
