weiss murray murder inquest with john j panton sitting at a table and resting his chin his hand in a room

Portrait of John J. Panton sitting at a table and resting his chin his hand in a room in Chicago, Illinois, at the Weiss-Murray murder inquest. Two rifles are lying on the table in front of Panton, and a man is sitting next to him and writing on a pad of paper. Men are sitting in the background and writing, and two men are standing. Another man in the background is standing behind a camera on a tripod. Earl Weiss and Patrick Murray, both bootleggers, were killed while walking with attorney W. W. O'Brien, who was wounded. Jacobs, Weiss' bodyguard, and Samuel Peller were wounded as well. Jacobs and Peller were brought in because they were present at the shooting.
