Slightly different answers above. I like this one the best because it is taken from a 1934 article at the time of the events.

"During the last two years Barrow and Bonnie Parker, with their various companions, have established a criminal record that eclipses even that of Pretty Boy Floyd and the other noted bad men of Southwest. And this elusive, youthful bandit couple - Barrow is 23 and Bonnie is only 19 - boast that they will not be taken alive.

They have murdered, assaulted, robbed, kidnapped, looted and shot their way out of police traps throughout Texas and in Oklahoma, Arkansas, Iowa, Missouri, Louisiana, Illinois, Ohio, New Mexico, Indiana and probably other States."


(Originally published by the Daily News on April 22, 1934. This story was written by Virgil S. Beck.)
