The neighbors from Gambais testified of the putrid black smoke that billowed from the chimney of the Villa Ermitage. One witness has seen him toss something into the pond out back and one witness claimed to have pulled out something like putrid flesh while fishing in the pond.



The gardens in Gambais and Vernouillet were dug up time and time again.

Landru would seduce the women who came to his villa and, after he been given access
 to their assets, he would kill them - probably by strangulation - and burn their
dismembered bodies in his oven.

In 1936, the daughter of the defense lawyer found a message scribbled on a drawing
handed to him from Landru that had been hanging on the wall of his office. It read:
"I did it. I burned their bodies in the kitchen stove."
