On the other hand, Anneliese's behavior was getting worse, she insulted, she beat and bit the other members of the family, she drank her own urine, she screamed and crawled all over the house, she destroyed the religious objects that she found its passage with great ferocity, like crucifixes and paintings of Jesus. In addition, she began to speak in other languages with a voice that, of course, was not hers. Finally, in 1975, the Bishop of Wurzburg, Josef Stangl, authorized Father Arnold Renz and Pastor Ernst Alt perform an exorcism on Anneliese.
From that moment on, there were two sessions a week to expel the possible demons that tormented this young woman. Despite the fragile state in which Anneliese was, it was necessary for three men to hold her while performing the exorcism sessions. On June 30, 1976, was the last exorcism session, since unfortunately, Anneliese died on July 1. The results of the autopsy indicated that Anneliese was malnourished, which is why she had died.
