Although some of the details are unclear, Haller had sexual relations with [[Marjorie Lowe]], a prostitute. Lowe became pregnant and gave birth to a boy whom she named [[Hieronymus Bosch]], giving no indication of the child's paternity. Although Haller was not listed as the father on the boy's birth certificate, he was clearly the father of this boy and was aware of him. He did not contribute to the boy's support, forcing Lowe to continue a life of prostitution. He did nothing for his illegitimate son after Marjorie was murdered.
