February 12, 1934
Outlaws Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow once again escaped the clutches of the law. The heavily armed couple and three other members of the Barrow Gang were speeding through Missouri’s Ozarks when officers gave chase. The gang shot its way out of a police trap near Reed Spring, then stole a car in Galena and headed south into Arkansas. Officers lost them after trailing them to Berryville (Carroll County) and toward Eureka Springs (Carroll County). On May 23, 1934, Barrow and Parker drove into a trap set by law officers (with the help of Henry Methvin of the Barrow Gang) near Gibsland, Louisiana. They were shot repeatedly and died at the scene. On the so-called death car was a stolen 1934 Arkansas license plate.
