February 17, 1929: Midwife Kills Chicago Woman

Before her death at Illinois Masonic Hospital on February 17, 1929, Mrs. Gladys Schaeffer said that a midwife named Emma Schulz had performed an abortion on her on February 12.

Gladys was a married woman, 23 years old.

When police went to arrest Schulz, she took poison in a suicide attempt. Police took her to Belmont Hospital. 

I've been unable so far to determine if Schulz survived and if so, if she was prosecuted.
