Victim was Mrs. Mary Clute who was in the process of moving from 230 Page Street this number no longer exists, here's the block she would of lived on.
She moved to 803 Guerrero Street, which also no longer exists but here's the block.
Mrs. Clute's wanted some new carpet put in and had asked Hoff (as he was called) if he would install it. Well the store she placed the order from said they had to install it and Hoff got mad, so Mrs. Clute's to compensate Hoff for his time asked if he would be willing to hang some painting for her and he agreed.
The neighbors had seen him there and had seen his tools. That would get him a death sentence.
Later transferred to Folsom as Inmate # 4867 and his sentenced was reduced to Life although he was discharged 12 July 1915.
I think they got the wrong man.
This is why I think this: I think it was the carpet layer. Also another fact is Mrs. Clute's wasn't the first women murdered in that area.
Some newspaper articles:
Albert died 18 Dec 1926. I found no genealogy information for him. There was a 1910 census when he was in Folsom prison that stated his parents were both born in Germany he came to America in 1850 and was Naturalized.
