The Insane Story Involving 3 Women Named Emma And A Brewery.

In 1910, Emma was involved in a horrific accident that left her bedridden.

Sadly, Emma’s condition required full-time care, so Otto, not being able to take care of her the way that she needed, began to look for a nurse for Emma. After a bit of searching, Otto realized that he had found the perfect nurse for his wife, who just so happened to be named Emma, as well.

Emma Dumpke was her name, also known as Emmi, and she was a beautiful German woman in her twenties.

Although her presence was of help to Otto’s wife Emma, Otto couldn’t seem to ignore the fact that she was painstakingly beautiful. In fact, it wasn’t long before Otto and Emmi had taken their working relationship to adulterous territory. Otto, who was in his mid-50’s at the time, felt no shame about his actions and did nothing to hide his illicit affair with his wife’s nurse from anyone.

Soon after Emmi became Otto’s mistress, she invited her very close friend to live with her in San Antonio.

Like Emmi, her friend was a nurse from Germany, and ironically, her name was also Emma, but she often went by the nickname, Hedda. As you can imagine, Hedda was also strikingly beautiful, and once again, Otto had a difficult time keeping his hands to himself.

Soon after Emmi became Otto’s mistress, she invited her very close friend to live with her in San Antonio.

Without taking a second to think, Otto offered to buy Emmi and Hedda their very own quaint little cottage right in town.

Things may have looked promising when the idea came about, but soon enough, Otto began to distrust Emmi’s loyalty to him. So to protect himself in the event that Emmi ever wanted to leave him, he put the little cottage in Hedda’s name. This meant that if Emmi did indeed leave him, he wouldn’t lose the cottage too.

Now that the women were in their new home, Otto realized that he needed to give them a bit of spending money.

As a monthly allowance, Emmi received $125 and Hedda received less with an allowance of $50. Otto was clearly happy with the arrangement. After all, he didn’t have to pay any mind to his sick wife when he had two other Emmas to obsess over. Otto may have thought things were going great, and they probably appeared to be that way, but there was deception lurking underneath the surface.

Now that the women were in their new home, Otto realized that he needed to give them a bit of spending money.
