AN INQUEST, which it is expected will have far-reaching results, will be opened to-night at police headquarters on the body of the infant son of Louis Greisman. Johnson will apply to the Attorney General for an order permitting an undertaker to exhume the remains.
The child died on Sunday night at 49 Chestnut Street and was buried yesterday in the Jewish Cemetery on Pape avenue. Had the remains not been buried the inquest would have been opened last night.
The jury’s verdict was as follows: “That the child came to his death from the excessive application of carbolic acid, and that Isaac Halpern was culpably ignorant of the use of carbolic acid.” _______________________________________________________ Baby Boy Rosenweig´s Death- April 1926 NY Times Archives April 24, 1926 Deaths of Two Babies Laid to Brandy Given To Quiet Them in a Brooklyn Hospital Suspicion that a mixture containing impure brandy resulted in the deaths of two children in the Brooklyn Maternity Hospital, 298 South Second Street, Brooklyn, caused the Medical Examiner to have the bodies removed to the Kings County Morgue last night, where an autopsywill be performed today by Dr. The children who died were a girl, born three days ago to Mrs.
Ida Cooper of 276 South First Street, Brooklyn, and the eight-day-old son of Mrs.
The report on the case made to the Chief Coroner by Dr. Death was due to acute disease of the kidneys caused by the excessive use of carbolic acid.
He had performed three operations last week and had a like number for this week. When there were very few Jews in Toronto he performed the marriage ceremony and other duties of a Rabbi.
At the present time he kills all the cattle for his congregation to see if the meat is fit food. John Caven, who conducted the autopsy, said that the condition found in the body was consistent with death from carbolic acid poisoning, the poison having been applied externally.
The Chief Rabbi of the British Empire twelve years ago formulated a set of rules for the guidance of circumcisors. All that is required is that the circumcisor be a conscientious Jew.
Isaac Halpern, who performed the circumcision, told the jury how he did the operation on baby Greisman.
