A Catholic Priest
The former rector of the Theological Faculty of Fulda, Prelate Aloysius Winter (79) is dead, according to the 'Fulda Zeitung' yesterday.
The story about his injuries was run on Saturday in Saarland which happened as a result of a robbery in his home in Fulda.
Prelate Winter was attacked on 25. June 2010 in his home in Haimbacher Street in Fulda by a then, 31 year old heroin addict.
The perpetrator broke the bedroom door of his victim down and struck like a beast against the clergyman.
A coroner at the University of Giessen has been directed in legal proceedings to report that the defendant had kicked and stomped his victim at least eight times on the head and trunk.
That had produced among other things, a hemorrhage. This is something from which the Prelate will not recover.
A few days after the accident he lay in a Fulda Clinic in a coma and had to have a stomach tube put in, sat on a wheel chair and was cared for around the clock.
Then he came to the rehabilitation center near Bernkastel an der Mosel.
"After that he started to speak in complete sentences, then his health came crashing down" -- said Brother Wilhelm according to Br. Wilhelm.
Since this time Winter can no longer communicate with his environment.
And in order to better serve his health his relatives decided to take him to a new convalescent home, placing him in the area of his birth area of Perl-Besch in Saarland.
"Thre we have visited him daily -- up to his last day. He is said to have died at five o'clock", explained his brother Wilhelm.
According to his own desire he will be interred at his birth place.
Prelate Winter was described by all of his acquaintances as someone with a good temperament but was also very ascertive.
