Third most-wanted Nazi war criminal dead: German prosecutor
Nazi death camp guard Samuel Kunz, number three on the Simon Wiesenthal Center's most wanted list and who was charged in July with helping murder 430,000 Jews, has died, German prosecutors said Monday.
"Samuel Kunz died on November 18 at 5:30 pm, most likely at his home" in Germany," prosecutor Andreas Brendel, head of the central Nazi war crimes investigation unit, told AFP.
"We have the death certificate," Brendel added.
Kunz was 89.
