Sunday, April 29, 1934

Ruth Ray, Mother and I went to Sunday school and church this a.m. Pauline and us went out to the at gallery and a baseball game. Ollie was over.

Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow were wanted for the murders of 12 people, including nine law enforcement officers.

And they were passing through Topeka, Kansas.

It was Sunday, April 29, 1934, and America's deadliest couple drove near the city's eastern edge, seeking to steal a vehicle to replace the beat-up Ford they had been using. They always abandoned their car and stole another when they felt the law was getting too close.

Bonnie stood on the running board and looked into cars. She spotted the keys inside a tan 1934 Ford parked in Jesse and Ruth Warren's driveway at 2107 S.E. Gabler.

The fast, sleek sedan belonged to the Warrens, but not for long.

By the time they got it back, it would have more than 160 bullet holes.
