Bonnie And Clyde’s Death

Written by: Peter Fishlock : 30 Jul 2019

This interesting photo was taken in May 1934 and shows the aftermath of Bonnie and Clyde’s death. The pair had enjoyed a two-year crime spree which resulted in thirteen killings. Bonnie and Clyde grew up in Texas and met each other in 1930. Clyde spent two years in prison and came out in 1932 and was even more violent. He formed a gang and began robbing small stores and gas stations.

The couple became famous in March 1933 when they shot their way out of a hideout after the police came to investigate. They met their demise in Bienville Parish, Louisiana, when a group of Texas rangers and other authorities carefully laid a death trap on a rural road. As the pair approached in a car they were riddled with bullets and the car crashed. Taking no chances, the officers poured another volley of bullets into the vehicle.

The footage in the video actually shows Bonnie and Clyde deceased in the car covered with holes. The officers were certainly leaving nothing to chance.
