CLYDE BARROW - FRANK CLAUSE POSTER



CLYDE BARROW CLOSE-UP




The murder of Charles H. "Buster" Gouge in July of 1929

According to two girl waitresses at a root beer stand, Marion Stanley and "Dapper Dan"
Black said that 17 year old Jimmie Arnold had made a trade for a .25 caliber automatic
pistol a short time before the shooting occurred. Witness Rose Cermack told Sheriff
Binford that the trade for the pistol had preceeded the shooting by about two hours.

Gouge was slain and his companion, Miss Lillian Bissett, 20 was seriously wounded.
Stanley admitted that he and Arnold were "prowling" cars at the beach on the night of
the shooting. Both Stanley and Black testified that the gun that was carried by Arnold
on the night of the shooting, was obtained in a trade at a root beer stand about two
hours before Gouge was killed. It was expected that the charges against Clyde Barrow
and Frank Clause, both named in the murder, would be dropped. Barrow and Clause
were willing to return to Houston to prove their innocence of the murder by establishing
that they were not in Morgan's Point at the time of the slaying. Investigator Jimmy Wyatt
had visited them in their cells and had quoted them as saying that they knew each other,
but were in seperate parts of the State on the night of July 2, 1929 when Gouge was shot
to death by two men and when Miss Bissett was seriously wounded by a bullet which struck
her in the right side of the back. Gouge had been killed with a .25 caliber automatic pistol.

HUBERT BLEIGH

After capture, Blanche Barrow named Oklahoma Badman Hubert Bleigh as the "third man"
in the gang, instead of W.D. Jones. Bleigh was then arrested in Oklahoma as a Barrow
associate. "Hubert Bleigh" was also an alias used by W.D. Jones. When shown a photograph
of Hubert Bleigh, witnesses "fingered" him, when it was actually Jones they had seen.
