The 89-year-old Kunz died on Nov. 18, the Bonn state court said in a short statement. Court spokesman Joachim Klages said Kunz died in his hometown, near Bonn, but did not have details on the cause of death.

Kunz’s name had surfaced in past investigations, but the recent allegations came up in Germany as prosecutors were poring through World War II-era documents in preparation for another case, that against the retired autoworker from Ohio, John Demjanjuk, who is now being tried in Munich.

The resulting investigation prompted Simon Wiesenthal Center to list Kunz in April as the world’s third most wanted Nazi due to the fact that he was allegedly involved personally in the killings and to the "enormous scope" of his suspected crimes, said the center’s chief Nazi hunter, Efraim Zuroff.
