Dick Tracy Wiki

Edith Bumpsted was the mother of George Bumpsted (aka Spaldoni) and J. Scotland Bumpsted.

After the death of Spaldoni, J. Scotland "Scotty" Bumpsted came to America to visit his grieving mother. Scotty then became involved in some of Dick Tracy's more dangerous enemies. Scotty was brutally beaten by Steve the Tramp, who came into the Bumpsted home while Scotty was recuperating, intending to kill him.

Mrs. Bumpstead shot at Steve and chased him back to his hideout. She emptied her gun into Steve and his partner Larceny Lu, then went to Police Headquarters and collapsed.

Larceny Lu and Steve both survived Mrs. Bumpsted's assault. She was not prosecuted, and her son eventually made a full recovery.
