Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow were the most famous gangster couple in history. From 1932 to 1934, during the height of the Great Depression, their gang evolved from petty thieves to nationally-known bank robbers and murderers. The gang was believed responsible for at least 13 murders, including two policemen, as well as several robberies and kidnappings.
Before dawn on May 23, 1934, a posse composed of police officers from Louisiana and Texas, including Texas Ranger Frank Hamer, concealed themselves in bushes along the highway near Sailes, Louisiana. In the early daylight, Bonnie and Clyde appeared in an automobile and when they attempted to drive away, the officers opened fire. Bonnie and Clyde were killed instantly. Below are the guns found inside the Famous “death car” after their deaths.
