Three-quarter length portrait of Gerald DeKing, son of dry raid victim, looking to his right and touching his face with his left hand, sitting in a courtroom in Geneva, Illinois. Public interest in the police raid that resulted in the death of Lillian DeKing was so strong that the hearing was moved to a larger room to accommodate the crowds. The raid took place at the DeKing home near Aurora, and the court hearing was held in Geneva, the county seat for Kane County.
