After John Dillinger was caught by local authorities at the Congress Hotel in Tucson, Arizona, on January 30th, 1934,the Lake County Jail became John Dillinger's home while awaiting trial for a bank robbery where innocent people were killed. It later became known as the place from which John Dillinger made his escape and he knew he was headed for theelectric chair if he stayed in the jail. While in jail he devised a plan for his escape.
Dillinger used razor blades provided by the jail to fashion a pistol out of either wood from a washboard or a bar of soap and stained it with black shoe polish. He then threatened his guards with the fake gun, helped himself to a real gun, hostages and the Sheriff's car and headed to Illinois.
