Bonnie and Clyde Clyde Champion Barrow and his companion, Bonnie Parker, were shot to death by officers in an ambush near Sailes, Bienville Parish, Louisiana on May 23, 1934, after one of the most colorful and spectacular manhunts the nation had seen up to that time. Barrow was suspected of numerous killings and was wanted for murder, robbery, and state charges of kidnapping.
The Texas Rangers were created in 1823 to defend Texas after the Mexican War of Independence. They quickly developed a reputation for violence which isn’t surprising given that between 1858 and 1901, 30 of their members faced bloody deaths. The Ranger did manage to kill and capture big name outlaws like Sam Bass, a bank robber who was shot by George Herold.
