Bonnie Elizabeth Parker October 1, — May 23, and Clyde Chestnut Barrow   March 24, — May 23, were an American criminal couple who traveled the Central United States with their gang during the Great Depression , known for their bank robberies although they preferred to rob small stores or rural gas stations. Their exploits captured the attention of the American press and its readership during what is sometimes referred to as the " public enemy era " between and , and they are believed to have killed at least nine police officers and four civilians. They were killed in May , during an ambush by law officers near Gibsland , The portrayal in the press of Bonnie and Clyde was sometimes at odds with the reality of their life on the road, especially for Parker. She was present at or more felonies during the two years that she was Barrow's companion,  although she was not the cigar-smoking, machine gun -wielding killer depicted in the newspapers, newsreels, and pulp detective magazines of the day. Nonetheless, numerous police accounts detail her attempts to murder police officers although gang member W. Jones contradicted them at trial.Bonnie & Clyde: Criminals and Celebrities - History

We were lucky enough to have the opportunity to catch up with Paige Bonnie and Daniel Clyde and talk about their new album and DJ careers. Really started hanging out at parties and at the lunch table. Our first impression of each other was starting a chant in our high school every Friday and making people want to turn up for the weekend. In our last year of college we both started producing over Skype. We felt it was perfect for our music because we like to make a lot of noise in our music and in our performance too.
Clyde would like to skydive and Bonnie would like to explore more of the world. This September she'll actually be visiting Italy for her birthday to see where her ancestors are from. It's about goals and when you reach a certain goal you feel accomplished, yet you still have more goals to reach.
Local police officers and approximately spectators surrounded the group, and the Barrows soon came under fire. Buck died of his head wound and pneumonia, after surgery five days later at Kings Daughters Hospital in Perry, Iowa.
For the next six weeks, the remaining perpetrators ranged far afield from their usual area of operations, west to Colorado, north to Minnesota, southeast to Mississippi; yet they continued to commit armed robberies. By early September, they risked a run to Dallas to see their families for the first time in four months.
Jones parted company with them, continuing to Houston where his mother had moved. Through the autumn, Barrow committed several robberies with small-time local accomplices, while his family and Parker's attended to her considerable medical needs. On November 22, they narrowly evaded arrest while trying to meet with family members near Sowers, Texas. As Barrow drove up, he sensed a trap and drove past his family's car, at which point Schmid and his deputies stood up and opened fire with machine guns and a BAR.
The family members in the crossfire were not hit, but a BAR bullet passed through the car, striking the legs of both Barrow and Parker. On November 28, a Dallas grand jury delivered a murder indictment against Parker and Barrow for the murder - in January of that year - of Tarrant County Deputy Malcolm Davis;  it was Parker's first warrant for murder.
Joe Palmer shot Major Joe Crowson during his escape, and Crowson died a few days later in the hospital. As Crowson struggled for life, prison chief Lee Simmons reportedly promised him that all persons involved in the breakout would be hunted down and killed. He was retired, but his commission had not expired. Hamer was tall, burly, and taciturn, unimpressed by authority and driven by an "inflexible adherence to right, or what he thinks is right".
Three of his four brothers were also Texas Rangers; brother Harrison was the best shot of the four, but Frank was considered the most tenacious. Barrow and Methvin killed highway patrolmen H. Barrow joined in, firing at Patrolman Murphy. It has long been assumed that Parker was asleep in the back seat when Methvin started shooting, and took no part in the assault.
During the spring season, the Grapevine killings were recounted in exaggerated detail, affecting public perception; all four Dallas daily papers seized on the story told by the eyewitness, a farmer who claimed to have seen Parker laugh at the way that Patrolman Murphy's head "bounced like a rubber ball" on the ground as she shot him. The outcry galvanized the authorities into action, and Highway Patrol boss L. Public hostility increased five days later, when Barrow and Methvin murdered 60 year-old Constable William "Cal" Campbell, a widower and father, near Commerce, Oklahoma.
Boyd identified both Barrow and Parker to authorities, but he never learned Methvin's name. Whatever chance she had for clemency had just been reduced.
He studied the gang's movements and found that they swung in a circle skirting the edges of five midwestern states, exploiting the "state line" rule which prevented officers from pursuing a fugitive into another jurisdiction. Barrow was consistent in his movements, so Hamer charted his path and predicted where he would go.
The gang's itinerary centered on family visits, and they were due to see Methvin's family in Louisiana. On May 21, the four posse members from Texas were in Shreveport, Louisiana when they learned that Barrow and Parker were to go to Bienville Parish that evening with Methvin.
Barrow had designated the residence of Methvin's parents as a rendezvous, in case they were separated, and Methvin did get separated from them in Shreveport. The full posse set up an ambush at the rendezvous point along Louisiana State Highway south of Gibsland toward Sailes.
Bonnie X Clyde is an American electronic dance duo formed in by Daniel Litman and Paige Lopynski. The duo originates from Fairfax, Virginia but started. With their vocal bass music, there's no stopping BONNIE X CLYDE from wreaking havoc to our ears -and that's a good thing. In a short amount. Soon after, Bonnie met Clyde, and although the pair fell in love, she never divorced Thornton. On the day Bonnie and Clyde were killed in
Hinton recounted that their group was in place by 9pm, and waited through the whole of the next day May 22 with no sign of the perpetrators  Other accounts said that the officers set up on the evening of the 22nd. At approximately am on May 23, the posse were still concealed in the bushes and almost ready to concede defeat, when they heard Barrow's stolen Ford V8 approaching at a high speed.
Their official report had Barrow stopping to speak with Methvin's father, who had been planted there with his truck that morning, to distract Barrow and force him into the lane closer to the posse. The lawmen opened fire, killing Barrow and Parker while shooting about rounds. Oakley fired first, probably before any order to do so. Each of us six officers had a shotgun and an automatic rifle and pistols.
We opened fire with the automatic rifles. They were emptied before the car got even with us.
Then we used shotguns. There was smoke coming from the car, and it looked like it was on fire. After shooting the shotguns, we emptied the pistols at the car, which had passed us and ran into a ditch about 50 yards on down the road. It almost turned over.
Bonnie X Clyde took by storm and are already making their mark on the new year. Get to know this dynamic duo today in our first feature. Paige Elizabeth, aka Bonnie, makes up half of the Bonnie X Clyde duo. Her partner in crime, Clyde, is Daniel Litman. Though Paige may be the voice we hear.
We kept shooting at the car even after it stopped. We weren't taking any chances. Researchers have said that Barrow and Parker were shot more than 50 times each;  others claim closer to 25 each, or 50 in total. Wade, listed 17 separate entrance wounds on Barrow's body and 26 on that of Parker,  including several headshots on each, and one that had snapped Barrow's spinal column.
Undertaker C. The deafened officers inspected the vehicle and discovered an arsenal of weapons, including stolen automatic rifles, sawed-off semi-automatic shotguns, assorted handguns, and several thousand rounds of ammunition, along with 15 sets of license plates from various states.
A crowd soon gathered at the spot. Gault and Alcorn were left to guard the bodies, but they lost control of the jostling, curious throng; one woman cut off bloody locks of Parker's hair and pieces from her dress, which were subsequently sold as souvenirs. Hinton returned to find a man trying to cut off Barrow's trigger finger, and was sickened by what was occurring. Nearly everyone had begun collecting souvenirs such as shell casings, slivers of glass from the shattered car windows, and bloody pieces of clothing from the garments of Bonnie and Clyde.
One eager man had opened his pocket knife, and was reaching into the car to cut off Clyde's left ear. The coroner enlisted Hamer for help in controlling the "circus-like atmosphere", and got people away from the car.
Barrow had been shot in the head by a. Preliminary embalming was done by Bailey in a small preparation room in the back of the furniture store, as it was common for furniture stores and undertakers to share the same space.
Curious throngs arrived by train, horseback, buggy, and plane. Beer normally sold for 15 cents a bottle but it jumped to 25 cents, and sandwiches quickly sold out. Both of them came to Arcadia to identify the bodies  because the Barrow gang had kidnapped them  in Ruston in Parker reportedly had laughed when she discovered that Darby was an undertaker. She remarked that maybe someday he would be working on her;  Darby did assist Bailey in the embalming. Bonnie and Clyde wished to be buried side by side, but the Parker family would not allow it.
Her mother wanted to grant her final wish to be brought home, but the mobs surrounding the Parker house made that impossible. Allen Campbell recalled that flowers came from everywhere, including some with cards allegedly from Pretty Boy Floyd and John Dillinger. Thousands of people gathered outside both Dallas funeral homes, hoping for a chance to view the bodies.
Barrow's private funeral was held at sunset on May The Barrow brothers share a single granite marker with their names on it and an epitaph selected by Clyde: "Gone but not forgotten. The bullet-riddled Ford and the shirt that Barrow was wearing have been in the casino of Whiskey Pete's in Primm, Nevada since ; previously, they were on display before that at the Primm Valley Resort and Casino.
Since then, the policy of payouts has changed to exclude payouts in cases of deaths caused by any criminal act by the insured. By the summer ofnew federal statutes made bank robbery and kidnapping federal offenses. The growing coordination of local authorities by the FBI, plus two-way radios in police cars, combined to make it more difficult to carry out series of robberies and murders than it had been just months before.
Two months after Gibsland, Dillinger was killed on the street in Chicago; three months after that, Pretty Boy Floyd was killed in Ohio; and one month after that, Baby Face Nelson was killed in Illinois.
The three duos distrusted one another and kept to themselves,  and each carried their own agenda into the operation and brought differing narratives out of it. Simmons, the head of the Texas DOC, brought another perspective, having effectively commissioned the posse. Schmid called "Halt! Schmid's Thompson submachine gun jammed on the first round, and he could not get off one shot.
Pursuit of Barrow was impossible because the posse had parked their own cars at a distance to prevent their being seen. Hamer's posse discussed calling "halt" but the four Texans "vetoed the idea",  telling them that the serial killers' history had always been to shoot their way out,  as had occurred in Platte City, Dexfield Park, and Sowers.
Other accounts, however, place Ivy at the center of the action, not tied up but on the road, waving for Barrow to stop. The posse never received the promised bounty on the perpetrators, so they were told to take whatever they wanted from the confiscated items in their car. Hamer appropriated the arsenal  of stolen guns and ammunition, plus a box of fishing tackle, under the terms of his compensation package with the Texas Department of Corrections.
Alcorn claimed Barrow's saxophone from the car, but he later donated it to the Barrow family.
The Parker family asked for them back but were refused,   and the items were later sold as souvenirs. In FebruaryDallas and federal authorities arrested and tried 20 family members and friends for aiding and abetting Barrow and Parker. This became known as the harboring trial and all 20 either pleaded guilty or were found guilty. The two mothers were jailed for 30 days; other sentences ranged from two years' imprisonment for Floyd Hamilton, brother of Raymond to one hour in custody for Barrow's teenage sister Marie.
Jones, Methvin, and Parker's sister Billie.
Blanche was permanently blinded in her left eye during the shootout at Dexfield Park. She was taken into custody on the charge of "assault with intent to kill". She was convicted and sentenced to 10 years in prison, but was paroled in for good behavior. She returned to Dallas, leaving her life of crime in the past, and lived with her invalid father as his caregiver. Inshe married Eddie Frasure, worked as a taxi cab dispatcher and a beautician, and completed the terms of her parole one year later.
She lived in peace with her husband until he died of cancer in Warren Beatty approached her to purchase the rights to her name for use in the film Bonnie and Clydeand she agreed to the original script.
However, she objected to her characterization by Estelle Parsons in the final film, describing the actress's Academy Award-winning portrayal of her as "a screaming horse's ass".
Despite this, she maintained a firm friendship with Beatty. Both were convicted of murder and executed in the electric chair at Huntsville, Texas on May 10, He was returned to Dallas, where he dictated a "confession" in which he claimed to have been kept a prisoner by Barrow and Parker.
Some of the more lurid lies that he told concerned the gang's sex lives, and this testimony gave rise to many stories about Barrow's ambiguous sexuality.
He gave an interview to Playboy magazine during the excitement surrounding the movie, saying that in reality it had not been glamorous. Methvin was convicted in Oklahoma of the murder of Constable Campbell at Commerce. He was paroled in and killed by a train in He fell asleep drunk on the train tracks, although some have speculated that he was pushed by someone seeking revenge.
He was killed by guards on October 3, during an escape attempt from Eastham Farm prison. Prentiss Oakley admitted to friends that he had fired prematurely. Hamer returned to a quiet life as a freelance security consultant for oil companies.
According to Guinn, "his reputation suffered somewhat after Gibsland"  because many people felt that he had not given Barrow and Parker a fair chance to surrender. He made headlines again in when he and Governor Coke Stevenson unsuccessfully challenged the vote total achieved by Lyndon Johnson during the election for the Senate. He died in at the age of age 71, after several years of poor health.
The bullet-riddled Ford became a popular traveling attraction. It was displayed at fairs, amusement parks, and flea markets for three decades, and became a fixture at a Nevada race track.
There was a charge of one dollar to sit in it. It was sold between casinos after being displayed in a Las Vegas car museum in the s; it was shown in Iowa, Missouri, and Nevada.
