On March 31, 1922, Andreas Gruber, aged 63, and his wife Cäzilia, aged 72, were on their Bavarian farmstead, Hinterkaifeck. The holding comprised a farmhouse and barn, and it lay between the towns of Schrobenhausen and Ingolstadt, around 40 miles from Munich, Germany.

The rumor in the neighborhood was that the Grubers were a troubled family. Andreas had previously been imprisoned for the sexual assault of his daughter, Viktoria. And there were even whispers that her son, Josef, was the product of incest.
