Bonnie Parker

Bonnie Parker was one half of the infamous Bonnie and Clyde duo, whose two-year crime spree across the nation during the Great Depression is now a cherished piece of American folklore. Parker was a waitress, who met Clyde Chestnut Barrow in 1929.

Clyde was shortly thereafter sent to jail, but escaped with a gun smuggled to him by Parker. The couple embarked on a string of kidnappings, heists and murders that spanned five states.

The two have been lionized as romantic figures but were, in fact, serial murderers. They killed a total of thirteen people while running from the law. They were killed in 1934 in a hail of 130 bullets.
