John Dillinger, the 1930s gangster and bank robber, was killed by the FBI in 1934 and supposedly buried in an Indianapolis cemetery.
Dillinger's relatives asked the Indiana State Department of Health permission to exhume the body from Crown Hill Cemetery in Indianapolis. In the request, Dillinger’s nephew and niece say they were presented with evidence to suggest the body is not actually his. Their request has been approved.
Susan Sutton of the Indiana Historical Society says getting to the coffin may a tough task.
