Interesting possibility, but it relies on Louis arriving before Leon. Yet Fanny says she saw Goldstein walk by, and only afterwards heard Diemschutz's cart go by.

The Daily News has the member who left with Wess and his brother as "Lewis Selzi".

Was William West actually Wolf Wess, as the witness page says, or was this his brother?

A plethora of biographies and obituaries confirm that Woolf Wess was indeed William West. I still can't find a name for the brother though.
