How to Become a Bounty Hunter



County Workers Find Rare Documents Signed by Famous FBI Agent Melvis Purvis Jr.

Two county workers shuffling through old boxes in a northeast Ohio courthouse made a rare discovery – documents signed by famous FBI Agent Melvis Purvis Jr., who tracked down John Dillinger and other gangsters in the 1930s.

The documents inside the Summit County courthouse attic include depositions signed in 1927 by Purvis, who was a lawyer at the time.

“He’s certainly one of those interesting characters in our past,” FBI historian John Fox said.

A county worker recognized Purvis’ name from the 1973 movie “Dillinger.”
