John Herbert Dillinger, Jr. was a Midwestern bank robber, auto thief, and fugitive who captured the national imagination until the FBI caught up with him in 1934. In frisking Dillinger, the Lima police found a document which seemed to be a plan for a prison break, but the prisoner denied knowledge of any plan. Four days later, using the same plans, eight of Dillinger’s friends escaped from the Indiana State Prison, using shotguns and rifles that had been smuggled into their cells. During their escape, they shot two guards. On October 12, three of the escaped prisoners and a parolee from the same prison showed up at the Lima jail where Dillinger was incarcerated

Introduction to Crime Following the end of his marriage, Dillinger moved to Indianapolis and met Ed Singleton, a former convict, while working at a grocery store. Young and impressionable, Dillinger was taken under Singleton’s wing and accompanied him as he committed his first heist: a botched grocery store hold-up. After fighting with the owner during the robbery and knocking him unconscious, Dillinger fled the scene, thinking the owner was dead. Upon hearing Dillinger’s gun go off during the brawl, Singleton panicked and drove away with the getaway car, stranding Dillinger

John Herbert Dillinger (/ˈdɪlɪndʒər/; June 22, 1903 – July 22, 1934) was an American gangster in the Great Depression-era United States. He operated with a group of men known as the "Dillinger Gang" or "The Terror Gang" which was accused of robbing 24 banks and four police stations, among other crimes. Dillinger escaped from jail twice.

John Dillinger was an infamous gangster and bank robber during the Great Depression. The group continued on a crime spree in various states until they were arrested, with Dillinger eluding authorities for months and receiving major media attention. In 1934, Dillinger was shot and killed in a setup by the FBI outside of a movie theater in Chicago.

Dillinger entered the crime world early on in his life. To impress a girl on a date, a young John Dillinger stole a car. When he was caught and the policeman didn’t believe his vague answers, Dillinger ran. Knowing it wouldn’t be safe to return home, he joined the Navy. To join two friends who’d been moved there, Harry Pierpont and Homer Van Meter, Dillinger requested a transfer to Indiana State Prison, where he learned the ropes of crime from experienced criminals. Especially important was Walter Dietrich, later a member of the Dillinger gang, who instructed him in a precisely timed style of bank robbery. Dillinger was released on parole in May 1933. By July 1934, he was dead. This photo of Dillinger posing with a tommy gun was signed by his father, John Dillinger, S. who toured the country after his son’s death with a show called Crime Doesn’t Pay.

If the child is taken against their will, kidnapping can be charged. In many instances, when the kidnapper is a parent, the charge of child abduction is filed.

John Dillinger was born June 22, 1903, in Indianapolis, Indiana. As a boy he committed petty theft. Singleton became Dillinger’s first partner in crime. He told Dillinger of a local grocer who would be carrying his daily receipts on his way from work to the barbershop. The incident did not go well. Dillinger was sent to the Indiana State Reformatory in Pendleton, where he played on the prison baseball team and worked in the shirt factory as a seamster. Dillinger’s remarkable manual dexterity came into play just as it had during his time at the machine shop. He frequently completed twice his quota in the prison factory, and would secretly help fill other men’s quotas.

The whole idea of kidnapping little Johnny seems like a good idea for Bill and Sam. After all, they are fully grown men, career criminals no less, whereas Johnny is just a ten-year-old child  . Bill and Sam choose Summit, Alabama as a location for the kidnapping because, within the time frame of this story, the Appalachian area in northern Alabama is remote and sparsely populated 1 Educator Answer.
