Woman shot as she is thrown from car windshield

September 15, 1926
Milwaukee, Wisconsin
Chicago, Illinois
Two articles are published regarding separate unfortunate events

The first article described a man, Ignacio Ortiz, having discovered his estranged wife with another man, Edward Wisniewski. Ortiz shot Wisniewski in the chest as the latter tried to drive away on a highway. The fatal shot caused the vehicle to crash, sending Mrs. Hazel Ortiz through the windshield, and Mr. Ortiz shot her twice while she was in the air.

The second recounts the discovery of an unidentified woman found hanging from a tree. With further research, I could not find any mention of the woman’s name or if the death was suicide or homicide.
