From the Chicago Daily Tribune
Published October 12, 1872

Two police officers were suspected of beating an inebriated man, rupturing a blood vessel in the man’s abdomen. He bled out so profusely his mattress was soaked in blood. I could find no other mention of the case, so it can’t be determined if the officers were at fault or if any convictions were later made.
