Bonnie Parker

Perhaps the most infamous female bank robber of all time, Bonnie Parker was the female half of the famous duo Bonnie and Clyde.

After years spent running from the law for murders while robbing grocery stores, filling stations and small banks, Bonnie and Clyde met their end on May 23, 1934 in an ambush at their hideout in Black Lake, La. Officers waited for their car on a roadside and riddled them with 167 bullets. Bonnie was found holding a machine gun, a sandwich and a pack of cigarettes. Clyde, barely recognizable from the shots, clutched a revolver.

The couple's bodies were publicly displayed in Dallas before being buried in their respective family's burial sites. Bonnie and Clyde ultimately were responsible for killing at least nine police officers and an untold number of civilians.
