Garden, under his birth name Rothmayer, had already been investigated by a Berlin, Germany, state prosecutor between 1967 and 1970 for aiding and abetting murder, because two people he had denounced to the Gestapo had been sentenced to death, and executed. The prosecutor closed the case without taking further action.[2]
