Bonnie and Clyde
Notorious outlaws Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow were killed in a roadside ambush near Sailes, Louisiana, early on the morning of May 23, 1934, ending the most spectacular manhunt seen in America up to that time. Bonnie Parker was 19 and Clyde Barrow was 21 when they met in Dallas in 1930. By the time the Barrow gang’s crime spree ended four years later, Bonnie, Clyde, Clyde’s brother Buck and Buck’s wife had terrorized the Southwest and Midwest and were believed to have committed 13 murders.
