Research points to several possible explanations as to why people thought Peter Stumpp was an actual werewolf. The first being that he was possibly a murderer, rapist and cannibal who people came to realize was so evil, that turning into a crazed beast was the only possible explanation for his actions. The next being that Stumpp was innocent, and an opposing religion wanted to make an example out of Peter to show everyone what happened if they did not comply with the church. There are testimony and documents to support both claims, but one fact is certain, Peter had one of the most brutal and notable deaths in history due to the torture devices used at his trial.
