"Terrible Ted" Walters
In October of 1971, "Terrible Ted" Walters was killed in a gun battle with Texas Rangers on a bridge
just outside of Grapevine, Texas. The spot, oddly enough, was just across the road about 300 feet from
where Bonnie, Clyde and Methvin killed the two police officers on April 1, 1934. "Terrible Ted" was
gunned down personally by Tom Arnold of Company "B" Texas Rangers. If you stand on the
bridge where Ted was killed you can easily see the spot where Clyde and Co. did "their" killing.

throw of where Murphy and Wheeler were killed
by Clyde Barrow and Henry Methvin in 1934.
