matters case detective harry edwards sitting in a courtroom

Image of Harry Edwards, a detective in the Matters case, sitting in a courtroom in Chicago, Illinois. Anna Matters, a wealthy widow, bought the baby of Margaret Ryan (alias Jessie Bryan) at the Misericordia Hospital in Ottawa, Canada, because she wanted to make a claim on her late husband's money with a rightful heir. Ryan - a poor country girl, pregnant out of wedlock- had been told by the nurses and nuns at the hospital that her baby died during childbirth. The doctors, nuns, and nurses had all been paid off by Mrs. Matters, who was also allegedly involved in an extramarital affair with Charles Mellon while in Ottawa.
