This seemed unbelievable, but when confronted by his wife for one day, he admitted that the accusation was true.

    Johanna Sundberg, a cousin of the bigamist, swore out a warrant for John Sundberg, who was immediately arrested.

    At the East Chicago Avenue police station, he made the following confession: He left Sweden for America, hoping to save enough money to buy a home and in order to bring his family here.
