Disorganized Crime: Dillinger, Karpis and the Yeggmen of St. Paul
Produced by Britt Aamodt
John Dillinger and Alvin “Creepy” Karpis robbed banks for a living. In their day—Depression-Era America—they were legends, as famous as Babe Ruth. But instead of home runs and ERAs, they counted stolen money and dead bodies. And when things got too hot, they ran to St. Paul, Minnesota, where they were welcomed with open arms and no questions asked. KFAI’s Britt Aamodt follows the trail of two of America’s most famous gangsters to 1930s St. Paul, with a guided tour provided by Paul Maccabee, author of “John Dillinger Slept Here.”
