In the vernacular of the Wild West, Bonnie and Clyde were “shot to doll rags.” The coroner’s report lists 43 entrance wounds between them. Bonnie beat Clyde at stopping bullets, 26 to 17.

Local and state government rewards totaling $26,000 were reneged upon. Can you imagine?

Eventually, each of the six participating lawmen received a check for $200.23 and 15 minutes of fame.
