8 /10 Stringtown, Oklahoma

Clyde, now a fugitive of robbery and murder, met Bonnie back in Dallas. He told her about the crimes he had committed and that she could join him or remain behind.

She promised to stay on his side. In front of a dance hall in Stringtown, Oklahoma, on August 5, Clyde and Ray shot two police officers: Sheriff C.G.

Maxwell and Deputy Eugene C. Moore; the former survived, while the latter died at the scene. Bonnie was there and saw the whole thing. Clyde raced the stolen car to Carlsbad, New Mexico, where Bonnie’s aunt Nettie Stamps lived.

7 /10 San Antonio, Texas

In Carlsbad, policeman Joe Johns spotted a speeding vehicle with an out-of-state license plate. He ran the vessel through the Division of Highways and noticed that the car had been reported stolen.

Office Johns came across the car again parked outside Nettie’s house. Curious about the situation, he knocked on the door.

The next thing he knew, Clyde held him at gunpoint. The trio took the officer for a ride to San Antonio, Texas, where he was released unharmed. He identified all three kidnappers: Ray Hamilton and the other were Bonnie and Clyde.
