Caption: On March 3, 1962, six days after the jury verdict, the bodies of Elmer "Dutch" Dowling (left) and Melvin Beckman were found sprawled on the pavement of Wolf Branch School Board (now Huntwood Road), north of Belleville. Beckman's shot-up car was found in the parking lot of a bowling alley in Swansea. Dowling had been Wortman's right-hand man and was convicted along with Wortman on Feb. 26. Beckman was a bodyguard in Wortman's organization. Among those standing near the bodies are Dr. C.C. Kane, the St. Clair County coroner (fourth from left). The woman at left is Kane's secretary.
