FBI Top 10 John Dillinger Myths Misses Biggest One of All
Among the myths the FBI list counters: that Dillinger was a Robin Hoodesque, romantic outlaw; that he was unarmed when he met his fate; that a stand-in was killed at the Biograph, not JD; that bureau thugs beat up Dillinger's one-time girlfriend after he was shot; that FBI chief J. Edgar Hoover assembled a hit squad to take Dillinger out; and that he badman was betrayed by a "woman in red."
But the FBI has obviously missed the biggest Dillinger myth of all . . .
