Siegfried Lüthy

From EverybodyWiki Bios & Wiki


Dr Siegfried Lüthy (October 18, 1933-May 3, 1996) was a German doctor and psychologist who is most notable for his work and involvement in the Anneliese Michel case. Luthy was born in 1933 in Bern, Switzerland.

In 1966, Lüthy received his degree in psychology from the University of Berlin. In his diary in 1970, Luthy wrote; "Today there was a girl, about 20, she seemed frightened." The subject of his entry proved to be Michel. In 1973, the year before Michels' death, Lüthy and his partner John Volt, were informed by Bishop Josef Stangl that they needed to present at Michel's planned Catholic exorcism rites. Lüthy eventually grew affectionate towards Michel and would often read to her.

After Michel's death, Lüthy and Volt were put on trial but were found not guilty. Lüthy never married and died in 1996 by suicide by hanging.
