weiss murray murder inquest with john j panton sitting a table and covering his mouth with a handkerchief in a room

Image of John J. Panton sitting a table and covering his mouth with a handkerchief 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 six men are standing. 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.
