The faint apparition appears just in front of a writing bureau.
Viewers believe this to be John Dillinger himself, a criminal who was shot dead by the FBI in 1934.
John Herbert Dillinger, Jr. (June 22, 1903 – July 22, 1934) was an American bank robber in Depression-era United States. He was charged with, but never convicted of, the murder of an East Chicago police officer during a shoot-out. This was his only alleged homicide. His gang robbed two dozen banks and four police stations. Dillinger escaped from jail twice.
On July 22, the police and Division of Investigation closed in on the Biograph Theater, Chicago. Federal agents, led by Melvin Purvis, moved to arrest him as he left the theater. He pulled a weapon and attempted to flee but was shot three times and killed.
