Gangster John Dillinger’s body was set to be exhumed from a cemetery. Here’s why it might not happen

(CNN)Is the notorious American gangster John Dillinger really buried at a cemetery in Indiana? That’s the question his relatives want answered. The permit was granted by the department of health and it was set that Dillinger would be exhumed on September 16 at Crown Hill Cemetery in Indianapolis. The History Channel was even set to film the exhumation as part of a documentary. Now less than a week from the dig, a lawsuit filed by Mike Thompson against the cemetery is halting the project. Last Wednesday, Thompson’s lawyer filed a proposed motion with the Marion County court saying that the cemetery is not to interfere with plans to exhume Dillinger. A hearing in that case is set for October 1, …

The average crowdfunding campaign for cancer care asks for $20,000 — but only gets about $5,000

(CNN)The cost of cancer treatment has gotten so high that patients and their families are turning to crowdfunding websites, like GoFundMe. But a new study found that cancer patients raising money on GoFundMe are only reaching about a quarter of their goal on average. “Although the Affordable Care Act reduced the uninsured rate, cost containment measures have not been realized by all patients,” the study noted. Medical fundraisers make up 1 in 3 of GoFundMe campaigns, and bring in more money than any other category, the company CEO Rob Solomon told MPR News last year. If a GoFundMe campaign doesn’t reach its goal, the fundraiser can still collect the amount that’s raised.

7 takeaways from the third Democratic presidential debate

Houston, Texas (CNN)Pete Buttigieg called it “unwatchable.” Amy Klobuchar warned that “a house divided cannot stand.” Julin Castro said what was unfolding on stage was “called an election.” “This is why presidential debates are becoming unwatchable.

That’s when Castro, the former Housing and Urban Development secretary and the chief instigator Thursday night, interjected. “Yeah, that’s called the Democratic Primary Election, Pete. That’s called an election. That’s an election. You know?” he said. “This is what we’re here for. It’s an election.” Here are seven takeaways from the third Democratic …

Cory Booker Goes There: ‘A Lot Of People’ Are Concerned About Biden ‘Fumbling’

Booker’s comments came during an interview with CNN after the third Democratic presidential debate in Houston. It was the first time the top 10 candidates were on the same stage, and it featured bouts of intense sparring between Biden and progressive challengers. At one point in the debate, former Housing Secretary CNN’s Erin Burnett asked if it was a cheap shot against Biden, who is 76, but Booker said the attack was valid. Castro’s comment about Biden’s memory didn’t sit well with the former vice president’s aides. Anita Dunn, an adviser to the Biden campaign, told reporters after the debate that the former Obama administration official “clearly didn’t learn from the first two debates that taking personal cheap shots at …
