John Dillinger Last Words

According to some sources, John Dillinger’s last words were: ‘You got me’. Some report that he said them after a gun battle with the FBI agents. However, other sources dispute this fact and say that he died in complete silence.

The gun battle that led to his death occurred on July 22nd 1934. He was 32 years old.

The informant by name of Anna Sage led to John Dillinger’s apprehension by authorities. Her information about his plan to visit a movie theater with his girlfriend led to his ultimate downfall.

The interesting fact about his apprehension is that the federal agents who secretly occupied the movie theater in order to capture him were mistaken by a movie theater employee for robbers. But when he called the police, he was informed by these federal agents that they were on a hunt for an important criminal.

After the movie has finished, the federal agents surrounded John Dillinger, and he decided to shoot his way out. That is when he was killed. Though it is widely reported that John’s last words were ‘you got me’, the agents who killed John Dillinger say that he died in silence.
