John Dillinger was shot down as he exited a theater in Chicago on July 1934 by police and federal agents. An informer alerted authorities that Dillinger would be coming out of that theater:
Bob Ford shot Jesse James in the back as Jesse got up to straighten a picture hanging on the wall. Bob Ford must have thought that his actions would make him a hero but the opposite was true.
Doc Holiday died from tuberculosis and his last words were, as he looked down at his bare feet, "This is funny."
I believe we all know that Pat Garrett was the one who shot and killed Billy the Kid. No death pictures so a tombstone with the dates will have to do.
And again, no death picture but a tombstone. Sam Bass was born in Mitchell, Indiana and was killed in Round Rock, Texas. He tried running a legitimate business but they must not have done very well because he then turned to a life of crime. He was wounded in a shoot out with authorities but escaped only to be found lying in a pasture west of Round Rock, TX. He is buried in Round Rock Cemetery on Sam Bass Road.
I can't find a death picture of Capone, so I guess his tombstone will have to do, too. Since he had syphilis, it may have caused the stroke that led up to his fatal heart attack.
Well, I believe that covers everyone that I mentioned in yesterday's blog posting. It seems that a life of crime ends at an early age and usually in death, at least in days gone by. Now, you all keep out of trouble and have a great day, you hear?
