Josef Leu von Ebersold (Unknownwikidata:Q4233718)


Swiss farmer and politician, shot in Lucerne 1845. Switzerland was not yet founded, but the liberal and conservative forces tried to get the majority. Josef Leu was rather an astonishing figure then, very engaged and charismatic, fighting for the Jesuits;he was much respected.Jakob Müller,his part,was quite another person.He was drinking far too much, steadily in high debts and he had a cold-hearted mother(Rosa Felix)as many of her remarks show.More and more, Müller had the idea of killing Leu - because of want of money.He had the illusion of losing all pecuniar sorrows - finally the Liberals would pay him for his heroic courage, wouldn't they? However Müller made several visits to leading members of the Liberals hoping they would promise a nice sum for his future if he went at work with his plan. July 13 he made his first try of shooting Leu,but once he was too tired and slept the whole night.Some days later he saw Leu,but he was not alone.Another day when he was ready his victim wasn't there day and night.Then came the night of july 19:Müller stood again near Leu's farmerhouse,waiting till midnight.First he put his rifle at a tree,took a little ladder clearing his situation.It was all quiet.He entered and saw Leu with his wife sleeping deeply.Now Müller opened the main door without making noise,took his rifle and shot.Leu was dead in a moment.Müller disappeared and was seen next day in the church. Few days later he was caught by the police.Müller's brother Anton had spoken too much and someone had listened.From then on his destiny was only a matter of time.But Lucerne wanted the political clash therefore main judge Amman was engaged with the intention to damage the Liberals for ever. Whole Switzerland was terrified about his way of speaking right.Two Liberals got the Penalty Death in absence,his mother had to go 18 years in prison.Jakob Müller was beheaded end of january 1846 in the morning.
