The once notorious Machine Gun Kelly was mocked in the news as “Pop Gun Kelly.” He was sent to Alcatraz Prison, home to many hardened criminals, such Al Capone. Moved to Leavenworth in the 1950s, Kelly died there on July 17, 1954, of a heart attack.
Today Kelly is remembered along with the likes of “Pretty Boy” Floyd, Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow, and “Baby Face” Nelson as one of the criminals that made up the Midwest crime wave of the early 1930s.
