In life Klaus Stortebecker was a pirate in death his headless corpse ran past 11 of his fellow pirates sparing their lives however the Hamburg Senate reneged on the deal and executed the eleven men anyways. Now unfortunately Stortebecker's skull has been stolen from the Hamburg museum and a few days later another skull turned up in front of the offices of Hamburger Morgenpost.
There is suspected that the "Hells Angels" are responsible because a gang war is ongoing over control of drug trafficking in northern Germany and they may be responsible for the theft and possible death of the person who's skull that turned up with axe wounds and a message written on it.
Klaus Stortebecker was executed in 1401.
UPDATE: The skull was recovered in March 2011
