Zdzislaw Marchwiki was born on the year 1927 in a poor family. His father had 5 marriages and 4 children. All of his siblings were also indicted in the crime that he committed for conspiring with the criminal, obstruction of justice and also robbing.
His killing period started on the year 1964 and was arrested on 1972. His trial lasted for 10 months in which the mainstream media plays a major role. He was given the sentence to die in July of 1975 and was executed on 1976. Marchwiki was held responsible for killing a total of 14 women and also an attempted murder for 6 others. 2 of the attempted murders were not proven by the prosecutor due to the lack of evidence.
Jan Marchwiki, his brother was also sentenced to die, the third brother was ordered to spent 25 years of life imprisonment, and Helena was given 3 years imprisonment for robbing the victims of things like watches, pens, etc.
During the trial, it was hard for them to determine whether Zdzislaw is the real culprit since they claimed that he is not exhibiting the actual behaviour of a supposed serial killer. During the criminal trial however, he admitted about writing diary that involves the detail of the crime he has committed. Further investigation shows that Marchwiki is a very unstable man and is capable of executing the series of murders.
One of the victims of Marchwiki came from a prominent family but the police authority denied that they have been pressured by the communist party in prosecuting the serial killer.
