On a beautiful morning, May 23, 1934 the careers of a notorious criminal duo, the scourge of stores and banks across the country, came to an abrupt end.
Six lawmen took them down in an ambush that’s still talked about today, marking the end of Bonnie and Clyde, criminal superstars.
They were the best of the worst in their time, robbing any and everyone where they found an opportunity, and responsible for at least 13 deaths across several Midwest and Southwest states.
In a day when women were thought of as ladies to be protected, people were amazed that the female part of the duo, Bonnie Parker, seemed to have no more conscience about her deeds than her male counterpart, Clyde Barrow.
She was tough and the only loyalty she seemed to have was for Clyde, and they lived their lives out together until the end.
This is the story of how that end was brought about. Read about it here at Criminal Superstars.
