Went into business as an undertaker with Big Bill Monahan. One night a hospital employee on late duty heard a strange noise in the graveyard and was able to make out the forms of two men carrying a casket away from the cemetery into the morgue. She told the authorities and the next day and they opened a freshly disturbed grave an found the body robbed of its casket. Although the greedy "ghouls" were brought to trial for taking and reselling caskets and corpse clothing, the articles could not be identified, so they both went free. Retribution overtook both of them. Johnnie was found dead in an opium parlor and his partner Bill was shot by an unknown assailant.
