John Dillinger House Could Be Moved To Become Tourist Attraction
MOORESVILLE, Ind. -- A relative of 1930s gangster John Dillinger might move a central Indiana farmhouse once owned by his family, saying local officials haven't shown any interest in turning it into a tourist attraction.
Dillinger great nephew Jeff Scalf says he's started talking with people in Greencastle and two out-of-state locations about sites for his collection of Dillinger items and possibly the farmhouse that is now in Dillinger hometown of Mooresville.
Authorities say Dillinger's gang killed 10 people during a yearlong spree of bank robberies and shootouts before FBI agents fatally shot him in Chicago in 1934. Dillinger's relatives maintain he never killed anyone himself.
