Blanche Barrow, the Last Victim of Bonnie and Clyde
by Mary Ann and Robert E. Davis
Blanche Barrow Prison Letters from 1933 to 1936. The story of Bonnie and Clyde’s crime spree – and its bloody end in a shoot-out in rural Louisiana – became the stuff of legend. To this day, there are discrepancies and points of dissent woven throughout their brief, violent time together. Blanche Caldwell Barrow met Marvin Ivan "Buck" Barrow, brother of the notorious Clyde Barrow.
They fell in love and got married. Because of her love and loyalty to her husband, she spent four months of bloody hell, on the run, then to watch as her husband was dying of a bullet wound to the head. She was shot at. She stepped over the bloody bodies of dead officers. She ran for her life. She was forever blinded in one of eye from glass shards. Her dreams of a normal life had turned into a nightmare. She became a fugitive as a member of the "Bloody Barrows" otherwise known as the Bonnie & Clyde Gang. She spent nearly 5 years in prison. All for the love of one man.
