William Heirens, who confessed to 6-year-old Suzanne Degnan's murder, is photographed by police.
After brutal interrogations, the University of Chicago undergraduate also admitted murdering two
other women. He now proclaims his innocence. "I confessed to live."

Another picture of Heirens in custody perhaps also on July 3, 1946 (he appears to be wearing the
same clothes with the same right sleeve cuff unbuttoned and shoved up to his elbow), perhaps
beaten after a few days in custody.

 

 

Bandaged at Bridewell.
