John Dillinger Museum to open in Crown Point

The John Dillinger Museum will open this week in Crown Point, Ind.

That's the town where the 1930s bank robber once broke out of jail.

The grand opening is Wednesday - the 81st anniversary of his death.

Dillinger was shot and killed by federal agents outside the Biograph Theater in Chicago in 1934.

A wall will be unveiled Tuesday at the museum, honoring police officers from Lake County who have died in the line of duty.
