In January 1944, Witt's new command was the subject of a major scandal. Early in the month, SS-Untersturmführer Wilifred Murr
, an officer in SS-Sturmbannführer Erich Olboeter's SS-Aufklärungs-Abteilung 12, had in a drunken state, raped a 15 year old Belgian girl after threatening her parents with his pistol. Murr was the son of Wilhelm Murr, Gauleiter of Stuttgart. Olboeter heard of the incident, and along with SS-Sturmbannführer Dr. Eberhard Denzel, the division's legal officer, visited Murr in his room and persuaded him that he should make use of his pistol to avoid embarrassing his family. As soon as the officers had left, Murr did so. Murr's father soon heard details of what had happened, and enraged wrote to Martin Bormann demanding an investigation.
In the resulting investigation, Olboeter was demoted and transferred to command of the III. Battalion of SS-Panzergrenadier-Regiment 26.
