On 3 February 1929, Kürten stalked an elderly woman named Apollonia Kühn. Waiting until Kühn was shielded from the view of potential witnesses by bushes, Kürten pounced upon her, grabbing her by the lapels of her coat and shouting the words, "No row! Don't scream!"  before dragging her into nearby undergrowth, where he proceeded to stab her 24 times with a sharpened pair of scissors.  Although many of the wounds he inflicted were so deep they impacted her bones, Kühn survived her injuries.  On 8 February he strangled a nine-year-old girl named Rosa Ohliger into unconsciousness , before stabbing her in the stomach, temple, genitals and heart with a pair of scissors, spontaneously ejaculating as he knifed the child and inserting his semen into her vagina with his fingers.  He then made a rudimentary effort to hide Ohliger's body by dragging it beneath a hedge,  before returning to the scene with a bottle of kerosene several hours later and setting the child's body alight,  achieving an orgasm at the sight of the flames.  Ohliger's body was found beneath a hedge the following day. On 13 February, he murdered a 45-year-old mechanic named Rudolf Scheer in the suburb of Flingen Nord , stabbing him 20 times, particularly about the head, back and eyes.  Following the discovery of Scheer's body, Kürten returned to the scene of the murder to converse with police, falsely informing one detective he had heard about the murder via telephone.
