Bonnie Parker

Bonnie Parker
October 1, 1910 - May 23, 1934

Parker became famous as the accomplice of her boyfriend, Clyde Barrow. She scandalized the nation with her unladylike deeds of robbing and killing; she was even photographed smoking a cigar. Parker used to send photos of herself and Barrow to newspapers. They died in an ambush by Texas and Louisiana police officers near Sailes, Louisiana.
