Portrait of Fred J. Weiss, brother of Earl Hymie Weiss, sitting a table and raising his right hand in a room in Chicago, Illinois, at the Weiss-Murray murder inquest. Two rifles are lying on the table in front of Weiss, 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. 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.
