Case

The victim walked into a saloon that belonged to L. Van Riswick on 118 First Street Northwest in Washington D.C. just before midnight on November 27, 1903. He entered the bar just before closing time and called for a drink of whisky. His drink was served and as he was in the act of drinking, he suddenly collapsed onto the floor.

The body was turned to the morgue master Schoneberger where the coroner determined he died from heart disease. His body was viewed by several people in an effort for identification, but no one could identify him.

He is now buried at the Washington Asylum Potters Field.
