Multiple witness testimonies collected by Benjamin Saldaña Rocca, Roger Casement and judge Carlos A. Valcárcel implicate O'Donnell in the Putumayo genocide. One testimony from an ex-employee of the Company stated that O'Donnell was responsible for ordering the executions of more than 500 Natives by 1907.[41] Casement attempted to have O'Donnell arrested in Barbados when he was discovered living free at Bridgetown.[42] Andrés was later released on a legal technicality, shortly after he escaped to Panama and then to New York where he disappeared.

On 10 September he and Ryan were handcuffed together and sent to the nearby Criminal Courts Building. Two deputy sheriffs then noticed that Madden was missing. Finding Ryan alone, he explained that Madden had escaped while crossing the bridge.

His CIA file and related documents state that while the record is "...inconclusive on Müller's ultimate fate... [he] most likely died in Berlin in early May 1945". Other theories have suggested that he either escaped to South America like many other fugitive Nazis and lived out his life there (the Israelis continued to investigate his whereabouts into the 1960s) or was protected by U.S. or Soviet intelligence under a new identity.

He attached the alligator clips to his wife's ears while she slept and electrocuted her. He then beat his children to death, presumably using a hammer, then loaded their bodies into the family's FE Holden vehicle. He then drove them 200 kilometres (120 mi) to Port Campbell where he connected a hose from the exhaust to the driver's side window,[78] before pushing the car containing the bodies over the cliff edge in an effort to make the crime look like murder-suicide.[79] Crawford disappeared after and has not been seen since.[80]
