In the years of 1675-1690, a unique witch hunt accrued where the hunt for an accused witch led to the deaths of many people. In the year 1675, a women by the name of Barbara Kollerin was arrested in Salzburg Austria for theft and sorcery. During her trial, she confessed that her son, Paul Jacob Kolle was involved in witch-craft. After her execution, the authorities began to search for Kolle who became known as the Jackl. As the police unsuccessfully searched for the Jackl, they presumed he was dead until they found a 12 year old handicap boy by the name of Feldner Bettlerbub Dionysos. Dionysos claimed that the Jackl was teaching kids and teens in the slums how to preform black magic. After Dionysos's confession, officials arrested many beggars and other young poor people from the slums. Many of the arrested teens told the authorities that the Jackl could turn invisible and could prevent crops from growing. Many people began to fear him and the police started to refuse to pursue Kolle in fear of being killed by his witchcraft. However, poor teens were still being arrested for being followers of the Jackl. Many gang members were targeted by the police for performing witch craft. By 1690, 139 people were either hung, decapitated, or burned alive. Although many were hunted and killed, the Jackl was never found.
