There are wounds caused by twelve (12) bullets as follows:
Bullet #1 has made a wound of entrance 10mm.in diameter located in the right anterior axillary line 3 cm, below the anterior axillary fold and surrounded by a pink to blue areola with inverted edges. The bullet traversed a course to the left and posteriorly thru the upper chest cavity, the structures at the base of the neck fractured the left clavicle, right innominate vein perforated with also a perforation of the left subclavian vein and made its exit at the acromian of the left scapula ( left shoulder).  This bullet passed through and out of the body and was not recovered.

Bullet # 2 made a wound of entrance in the mid-axillary line 23.5 cm. to the right of the midline of the bade, producing a jagged, slightly irregular 14 by 10 mm. hole with inverted edges and a superficial excoriation with a pink discoloration about the periphery for a distance of from 2 to 3 mm.  It made its exit in the seventh intercostal space 17.5 cm. to the right of the midline in front through a hole 13 by 13 mm. in diameter with everted edges and a 3 mm, pink areola. It passed through the chest cavity fracturing the eighth rib and perforating the pleurae and lung tissue.

Bullet # 3 made a wound of entrance, 12 by 6 mm. in diameter, 8 cm. to the right of the midline of the back just on a level with the top of the sacrum.  The bullet traversed a course forward and upward, through the body, intestines, liver, dome of the diaphragm, fractured the 8th rib anteriorly and made its exit on a level with the 8th rib 15 cm. to the right of the midline, through a hole 8 mm. in diameter.

Reinhart Schwimmer


Reinhart Schwimmer resided at the Parkway Hotel. He is born Dec.1st (Again discrepency with date , certificate lists 1899 and headstone mentions 1900). Born in Chicago, Illinois.  Height:5'  8 1/2 " Weight :160 pounds. Dark brown curly hair and brown eyes. Father was Michael Schwimmer and mother was Josephine Herenauser. He was divorced in 1923 from his wife Fae Johnson Schwimmer and then went to live at the Parkway. He was requested to leave there after accumulating debt.He then married a rich widow by the name of Mrs. Risch and tried to return to the Parkway again saying he was through hanging around gangsters.Mrs. Risch divorced him in 1927-28 and he returned to his association with the Moran mob and his spinning of stories of importing alcohol from Detroit. His profession was as optometrist(today he would be considered an Optician since he had no medical training).He like to be close and associated with gangsters. He was friends with the Northsiders, starting with Dion O'Banion (Attended his funeral) then Weiss, Drucci and Moran. He like to pretend he was in the booze business and that he could have anyone wacked if he chose to. His association with gangsters took up most of his time and his optometry business was failing. He owed money for gambling debts. His mother would pay his rent. Schwimmer has a total of 25 entrance/ exit wounds. Sixteen are lead pellets in the back from shotgun blasts. This would explain the only two Climax shotgun shells found at the scene. They were ("double-aught") 00 buckshot variety, each shell containing 8 large pellets. Which meant the the two shells were fired at Schwimmer only.
His body is identified by his mother Josephine Schwimmer.
His autopsy is performed by F.D. Gunn.
