THE GANGSTER CHRONICLES 1.1Yesterday's News
A Reading from America’s Historic Newspapers
-
In this first volume of "The Gangster Chronicles," we will follow the trail of terror blazed by one of America's most famous, perhaps most beloved, gangsters, John Dillinger. From the time he was paroled from the Michigan City prison in May, 1933, to the time he was gunned down by police on a Chicago sidewalk in front of the Biograph Theater 14 months later, John Herbert Dillinger was one of America's most notorious scoundrels. Chapter One will detail some of Dillinger's earliest known robberies and his murderous escape from the Lima jail. We plan to tell the Dillinger saga in five chapters. After this first one, you can expect a new installment at 7 p.m. on the first Sunday of the month. We're considering the options for Volume 2 and are welcome to suggestions. Please email us at truecrimehistorian@outlook.com with your thoughts.

The Mutilation Of Anna Aumuller

Episode 217 is more than just a murder. It starts out one of your everyday girl gone bad headless torso murders, but the finding of the body parts only opens a sweeping international criminal case that gets the feds involved. This story has a big pile of drama around every corner, including some impressive courtroom theatrics, but is so laced with lies and deceit that it might have been easier to put Anna’s body back together than to get at the entire truth of the matter. But whatever story is true, any one of them will make your blood curdle. Promise.

Pregnant Church Worker Found Dead In Harvey’s Lake
If the tropes in Episode 275 sound a bit like Episode 96, “The Body In Big Moose Lake,” the familiarity was not lost on the people of the day, either. The 1906 murder of Grace Brown in Big Moose Lake inspired novelist Theodore Dreiser to write “An American Tragedy,” which became an instant classic when it was published in 1925. The story you are about to hear struck such a familiar chord that the press made many comparisons and headlines described the murder of Freda McKechnie and the trial of Bobby Edwards in the same terms. Theodore Dreiser was called upon by the New York Post to cover the trial, and he makes a brief appearance in our story when he receives an admonition from the bench.
