Murder of Alexandra Schriefl
On the night of October 26, 1988, the Austrian national holiday, the 20-year-old saleswoman Alexandra Schriefl from Vienna-Favoriten was attacked, abused and strangled. She had previously visited the "Azzurro" discotheque on Himberger Strasse with friends and was last seen alive at a nearby telephone booth around 02:30, from where she called her boyfriend to pick her up. When her boyfriend arrived, however, Alexandra was already gone. When she still hadn't turned up in the late morning, a search was initiated. It was not until eleven hours after her disappearance that her naked body was found tied to a tree behind a billboard on Himberger Strasse. She had been strangled with her stockings and sweater.

The investigators targeted a masked man who had molested and attacked women in the area several times since July, a car driver who, according to a testimony, had spoken to Alexandra and was seen in front of the discotheque, and three young boys who, according to another testimony, were seen Alexandra is said to have followed after leaving the discotheque. Within a few weeks, more than 500 people were questioned, including visitors to the discotheque and a subsequent bowling alley who were there on the night of the murder, as well as previously convicted sex offenders and victims of such attacks. However, no perpetrator could be identified.

On November 11, 1988, Alexandra Schriefl was buried at the Vienna Central Cemetery, attended by more than 250 mourners.
