May 23, 1934: Died, Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow. They were young, they were wild, and they captured the imagination of the American public. In the end, it took 130 rounds of ammunition to bring them down. "We opened fire with the automatic rifles," said members of the posse. "Then we used shotguns ... After shooting the shotguns, we emptied the pistols at the car... [The car] almost turned over. We kept shooting at the car even after it stopped. We weren't taking any chances."

The Real "Bonnie & Clyde". Bonnie Parker (1910-1934) and Clyde Barrow (1909-1934) were American outlaws and robbers from the Dallas area who traveled the central United States with their gang during the Great Depression. Though known today for his dozen-or-so bank robberies, Barrow preferred to rob small stores or rural gas stations. The gang is believed to have killed at least nine police officers and several civilians. The couple were killed in Bienville Parish, Louisiana, by law officers.
Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow were two of America's most famous gangsters during the Great Depression. Since their deaths many people claim their ghosts still remain. The most active of these hauntings is at the site in the wooded area near where they were shot and killed in their V8 Ford “Death Car” in Louisiana. The car itself, displayed in a room at Whiskey Pete’s Casino in Primm, Nevada is also considered haunted by their ghosts, as is the Baker Hotel in Mineral Wells, Texas.
