Let’s get on with the facts now.

Bonnie Died Wearing His Wedding Ring

People actually don’t know that Clyde wasn’t the only man Bonnie loved. In fact, she got married to Roy Thornton, her high school classmate, right before she turned sixteen. Of course, the love vanished within months, and she never saw him after he went to jail in 1929 for robbery. But the interesting thing is that she never divorced Thornton. This makes us wonder whether she truly got over him or not?

But soon after Thornton got imprisoned, she met Clyde. When Bonnie and Clyde died in 1934, she continued wearing her wedding ring and there was also a tattoo found on her right thigh that has two interconnected hearts with her and Roy’s name labelled.

Bonnie Enjoyed Writing Poetry

An interesting fact about Bonnie is that she was a capable writer. She excelled at creative writing back in her school days. In 1932, she got imprisoned for burglary, and that’s when she wrote a collection of 10 odes titled “Poetry from Life’s Other Side”. In addition to this, two weeks prior to her death, Bonnie had also given a prescient poem to her mother titled “The Trial’s End”.

The Navy Rejected Clyde

Life could’ve been vastly different if Clyde had been accepted by the US Navy. As a teenager, he enlisted in the US Navy but due to poor medical report, he got rejected. This really disappointed him, because it seemed like he had it all planned. He had even tattooed USN on his left arm. Anyway, life had other plans for him.

Clyde Was First Arrested When he Failed to Return the Rental Car

Do you know that the notorious criminal was primarily arrested for an automobile theft? In 1926, he failed to return a rental car which he had taken to visit his estranged high school girlfriend.

Who would’ve imagined that a criminal of such reputation started out with such a small crime? In fact, the rental agency even dropped the charges! But again, he was bitten by the crime bug of some sorts because, three weeks later, he and his brother were arrested again for the possession of stolen turkeys.

Clyde Stabbed His Rapist to Death

In 1930, Clyde was sentenced for 14 years in the Eastham Prison Farm. He was convicted for a series of robberies, but thanks to his mother, he was let go after only a seventeen months. His mother pled the governor of Texas for Clyde’s parole.

But the damage was already done – in these intense seventeen months, he was almost starved to death and violently thrashed by the prison guards. Many even believe that he was also raped by another prisoner who he eventually murdered. Even though it was one of Bonnie’s “lifer” friends who took responsibility for it, it was actually Clyde who stabbed him to death.

Clyde Chopped Off Two of His Toes

This is when things began to look gruesome for Clyde. As you know, Clyde was sentenced to 14 years in prison in 1093. But, in the January of 1932, he failed to endure the brutal circumstances at the infamous Eastham Prison Farm. His thoughts were clouded and sanity in question, and that’s when he decided to severe his left toe in the hopes to get transferred to a less ferocious facility.

This permanently hampered his walk and stopped him from wearing shoes during drive ever again. This step was later deemed as unnecessary because, only six days later, his mother’s request for the parole was accepted. .

Bonnie and Clyde Were Buried Separately

Bonnie and Clyde wanted to be together forever, but their final wishes were not granted. Before dying, the couple said that they never wanted to be apart and wanted to be buried side-by-side.

Bonnie’s mother, however, never liked him and always disapproved of their relationship. And so, when the time came, she buried her daughter separately in a Dallas cemetery. Clyde, on the other hand, was buried next to his brother Marvin and on his tombstone

“Gone but never forgotten” was engraved. And how true is that? Despite her mother’s attempts, Bonnie and Clyde became known to the world as one.

What stories have you heard about Bonnie and Clyde? Do you think their life was a tragedy or were they culpable lawbreakers?

We’re living in a world where people leave no stone unturned in romanticizing serial killers. And the Bonnie and Clyde death is a testament to the fact that the world of pop culture is and will always be obsessed with delinquent minds.
