History of Bonnie and Clyde

Listen to Pat give the fascinating history of Bonnie and Clyde. The famous gangsters were bank robbers, murders, and lovers. After growing up in and out of prison, Clyde decided he would never be taken alive and Bonnie wanted to join him in a life of fame and glory. Former Texas Ranger Frank Hamer and his posse granted the duo their wish in May 1934 near Gibsland, Louisiana when they ambushed the couple and shot up their car.

Time for the Debate

Since Bonnie and Clyde’s gruesome deaths, their ghosts have been sighted where they died, where they are buried, in the car they were shot in, and in some of the places they stayed in the life on the run. Listen to Pat and Rebecca debate these sightings and give their believability ratings.
