Unsolved, I love you but how could that guy be a Nazi spy just after WWI when the Nazis weren’t even a big thing yet? Also, he was writing in Yiddish, (a mixture of Hebrew and Russian/German), therefore he would’ve been Jewish and not working for the Nazis...

Is it possible ester paid this guy to kill one if not both her husbands and used the ace man s a cover
Sophie e Johnson (6 days ago)
I think that he (axman) thought he was ugly and nobody loved him. So he would go kill young lovers to get back and feel better. He would go on and on. He will say he is a demon on Satan and an angel of death, but he was perfectly human. He was under the reading of Satan. He will play jazz to cope with it. He likes to play games with people, so he threatens them to play along. I don’t believe that Louis killed his wife but maybe he did. I have a hard time believing that he would kill his wife but if he wants to sneak in because he is a spy. He could be the killer. I’m in the middle about him (Joseph). I think Esther is a not a bad person but a great female figure. I tried to keep it short

0:49 when he said right of the bat I thought he was going to say or should I say right of the axe!!!
The Girly Dragon (8 days ago)
Umm... i think he was maybe a satanist? Anybody else notice this was overlooked? He clearly mentions the devil several times in such a way that its obvious he was a satanist.
comic exe (14 hours ago)
satanist's don't believe in the devil. The religion of satanism is only about living your life to make you happy, as long as it doesn't hurt anybody
princesstamika (8 days ago)
it doesn't necessarily mean that. he was trying to provoke fear and used something that would be easily understood. he was doing evil, hellish things so he used the satan motif (or whoever wrote the letter). "satanism" as we know it, was active in the 1920s but mostly in europe and among very rich people.

How could she call him a Nazi spy if it was 1919... the Nazi party didn’t exist yet
angie Yes, but the Nazis didn’t have spy’s at that time,nor were they the problem of anyone
