Pictured for the first time: The cabin in which Hitler's deputy Rudolph Hess hanged himself as secret dossier deepens mystery over monster's death
A declassified report has revealed for the first time the stark scene in which Hitler's deputy Rudolph Hess was said to have killed himself at a fortified compound in Berlin, and his alleged suicide note.
Pictures, which had not been published until now, show the electrical cord Hess allegedly used to end his life inside a small summerhouse at Spandau Prison 25 years ago this month.
But the report of the investigation into Hess's death, released this week under Freedom of Information, has only deepened the mystery surrounding his final moments.
