History Channel No Longer Doing Documentary on John Dillinger

The network did not give a reason why Wednesday morning.

INDIANAPOLIS -- It turns out there won't be a documentary about John Dillinger after all. 

A&E and the History Channel said Wednesday they will not do a story about the exhumation of Dillinger's remains. 

Dan Silberman, Senior Vice President of Communications, did not give a reason as to why they weren't moving forward with the project. 

The idea of the documentary was announced in July. Last month, family members of the infamous bank robber from the 1930s said they had reason to believe the body buried in Crown Hill Cemetery in Indianapolis actually isn't Dillinger's.

Crown Hill Cemetery officials objected to the exhumation, prompting Dillinger’s nephew, Michael C. Thompson, to sue the cemetery
