"All I need in this life of sin"-Jay Z
Bonnie Parker was born October 1, 1910 in Rowena, Texas. She wasn't the tallest girl, at 4 feet, 10 inches, and 85 pounds, but she was very bright. She married Roy Thornton, unfortunately, a year later he began to cheat on her and she left to West Dallas. In 1930 she met Clyde. Clyde Barrow, aka Roy Bailey, aka Jack Hale, aka Eldin Williams, aka Elvin Williams (what a catch!), was born in Telico, Texas on March 24, 1909. He was 5 feet, 6 and 3/4 inches tall, with a schoolboy face and a love for the sax. Clyde never passed fifth grade and was in trouble with law at a very young age.Clyde was eventually arrested and sentenced to two years, during which Bonnie visited everyday, conveniently smuggling a Colt to him, which he used to escape and become recaptured shortly thereafter and sentenced to fourteen years. Clyde was pardoned and he and Bonnie left, with no destination in mind, in a stolen car. Clyde escaped when the police found them, Bonnie was arrested and put in jail for a couple of months. Good ol' Clyde kept busy robbing Sims Oil Company (Dallas, TX), a jewelry store, which resulted in the death of the owner, and a few gas stations. After Bonnie was released and a few more robberies and murders were committed, he and Bonnie stole a car with hostages. After several attempts to capture Bonnie and Clyde had failed, Bonnie and Clyde were killed by over 167 rounds being shot into their vehicle. In the vehicle they found 1 saxophone, 3 Browning automatic rifles, 1 10 gauge Winchester lever action, sawed-off shotgun, 1 20 gauge sawed-off shotgun, 1 Colt 32 caliber automatic, 1 Colt 45 caliber revolver, 7 Colt automatic pistols, approximately 3,000 rounds of ammunition and license plates from Illinois, Iowa, Missouri, Texas, Indiana, Kansas, Ohio, and Louisiana.
