The escape proof jail at Crown Point.
March 3, 1934.
After Dillinger. Sheriff Lillian Holley, “If I ever see John Dillinger again, I’ll shoot him dead with my own gun. Don’t blame anyone else for this escape. Blame me. I have no political career ahead of me and I don’t care.”
Talk about stand up and be counted – Sheriff Lillian Holley is a person I respect. She lived to be 103 years old.
