Gangster John Dillinger's body to be exhumed

Prolific bank robber John Dillinger is not going to be resting in peace in a couple of months.

Come September skeptics will finally get some answers about IF John Dillinger’s body is REALLY in John Dillinger’s grave.

Yes the prolific gangster -slash- bank robber’s body is being exhumed, at the request of a family member, to do a DNA test to find of if the man that was buried in 1934 is the John Dillinger.

It’s a fascinating story in it’s own right but it’s close to home too, as Dillinger once called St. Paul, home.

Jana sat down with Paul Maccabeee, who wrote a book about Dillinger, to see what he makes of this latest twist.
