Case 223

The Kuřim Case

*** Warning: This case involves a child victim ***

When Czech Republic man Eduard Trdý inadvertently intercepted the video feed of his neighbour’s security camera in May 2007, he was so alarmed by the footage that he contacted the police. Officers soon arrived at the home of Klara Mauerova, only to make a shocking discovery regarding her two young sons and her recently adopted teenage daughter. 
 
As investigators delved further into the case, they discovered a group of offenders who were tied together by a nearly unbelievable web of deceit.
