Dillinger 75th Anniversary

Today is the 75th Anniversary of the death of John Dillinger

He was shot down July 22, 1934 in front of the Biograph Theater

Newsreel with the body. WARNING - GRAPHIC

This is a fabulous book written by local Crime History God Paul Maccabee. It covers Dillinger's time hiding out in the corrupt St Paul of the bootlegger days when the law was on the take. Every once in a while he hosts tours of the sites. Unfortunately it always seems like I have to work those days. Sigh...
