Dutch Morgan is the head of Killers Inc. He and his gang will bump off anybody, including business partners, for half the business. He does that to the owner of a shipping company and takes complete control of the business with another killing.
The cops must have been busy somewhere else. It does not appear they investigated Dutch Morgan when the owners of the shipping company went missing, and Dutch suddenly became the owner. And that after Dutch had his picture over a newspaper article calling him the suspected head of Killers Inc. Dutch feels mighty powerful, because not only is he the shipping company owner, he eliminates all other competition — on the docks, yet. Despite his luck at not getting caught for his nefarious deeds, justice catches up to Dutch when he presumes he can take over the ship itself.
It all ends bad, in that way that crime comic books end their stories. There is a final panel of justice being administered, after pages of showing criminals commiting their foul deeds. It’s from Underworld #1 (1948). The Grand Comics Database doesn’t accuse any artist or writer of a first degree felony for creating this story.
