In October of 1936, 26-year-old Katherine DiDonato, mother of two, was admitted to Roosevelt Hospital to be treated for complications of a criminal abortion. Katherine’s husband reported that the abortion had taken place three days earlier. Detectives were told that Katherine had bought pills from drug clerk Hyman Kantor, who had then recommended Dr. Aloysius Mulholland to perform an abortion. Katherine died several days later. Both Mulholland and Kantor were arrested and charged with homicide.
Mulholland had also been implicated in the 1931 abortion death of Jane Merrill.
Aloysius Michael Mulholland was born May 20, 1892 in New York and was married to Edith Linden.
