Once Clyde reached his parole he and Bonnie reconnected and began their life of crime. The two started being investigated in December 1932 through a singular bit of evidence. The couple’s turn of events led to their shootout on May 23, 1934 which resulted in the two meeting their death due to being shot repeatedly.

On May 20, 1933, the U.S. Commissioner in Dallas, Texas, issued a warrant against Clyde Barrow and Bonnie Parker based on the evidence gathered. This warrant charged the two with vehicle stolen and transported. When they were killed in 1934, they were believed to have committed 13 murders and several robberies and burglaries.
