weiss murray murder inquest with mary p schwierk sitting at a table in a room covering her face with her hand

Informal portrait of Mary P. Schwierk sitting at a table in a room in Chicago, Illinois, during the Weiss-Murray murder inquest. Schwierk is covering her face with her left hand. A man is sitting to her right and writing in a pad of paper. Two other men are sitting near her, and a third man is standing in the background. 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.
