It's been more than 75 years since Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow died in an ambush on May 23, 1934, on a desolate road in Louisiana.
But many Kansans may not know that they sought refuge in Kansas.
During the early 1930s, the Barrow gang became notorious for bank robberies and shootouts with the law throughout the central United States.
They robbed and shot their way across Texas, Oklahoma, New Mexico, Louisiana, Arkansas, Missouri, Indiana, Minnesota, Ohio and Iowa.
Never miss a local story.
But it was in Kansas that they often came to hang out and avoid detection from the law.
The two would assume different identities. Bonnie became “Jewell” and is reported to have run a cafe while Clyde became “Blackie Underwood” and worked for area farmers.
