Geraldine Easley, age 19, admitted before her death on March 19, 1932, that she had undergone a criminal abortion. Since Dr.
James W. Eisiminger
Richard E. Thacker
had been responsible for a string of other criminal abortion deaths in the Oklahoma City area, suspicion in Geraldine's death naturally leaned toward the two known quack abortionists.
However, to my knowledge the specific perpetrator was not identified.
