WWW.SHROUDEATER.COM - The Vampire of Strzepcz - POLAND
in : "Der Eilbote", 5 July 1845, Landau in der Pfalz
"In Strzepcz (preuß. Provinz Danzig) wurde Nachts die Leiche eines Frauenzimmers wider ausgegraben und ihr mit einem Spaten der Kopf abgestochen, weil man sie für eine Vampyr hielt."
I agree, it is not a lot of information that we have been given:
"In Strzepcz (in the Prussian Province of Danzig), at night, the corpse of a woman was dug up and her head chopped off with a spade, because she was thought to be a vampire."
As this is a news item published in July 1845, I guess we can assume that the event took place in 1845.
I did find a place called Strzepcz. It can be found close to Danzig, just North of Gdynia.
Find and read "Der Eilbote", not that there is any further information there. See if you can find the case mentioned elsewhere.
