A Mysterious Death in 1915

Mary Shvernieckas of Western Avenue in Chicago died on May 3, 1915 from complications of an abortion perpetrated by an unidentified person.

Aside from a sidebar in the May 29, 1915 Chicago Tribune including Mary among women who had died in Chicago so far that year, I've been unable to learn anything whatsoever about Mary. She is not even showing up in Chicago or Cook County death records.
