A recently discovered newspaper article saying Bonnie had glasses on during the ambush ????? as I have said before I am sure those glasses were in the car as I am sure they belonged to the original owner of the car, or.... left in the car by other folks that have been in the car, there are no reports, photo's or any mention of Bonnie ever wearing glasses ever ! as for the newspaper article ? lets see what other interesting things we have learned from them, 1- Bonnie killing people, wrong.... 2- Bonnie smoked cigars, wrong..... 3- Clyde Barrow was gay, wrong..... I could go on and on with this list but there is no need, as we all know how the media screws up the real stories, again..... I am not saying those glasses were not in the death car as I am sure they were taken from the car, any collector would love to own these priceless artifacts, me included,.... all I am saying is I do not believe they were Bonnies ! quote from the article......they fell from her shot-torn face as her limp form was loward from the car onto a funeral truck.... from what I uderstand they were found in the car, actually .... they were never listed as one of the items found in the car that I ever seen, Ted Hinton was the first lawman to approach the car opening Bonnies door with Bonnie falling in his arms, funny thing is....he never said a ward about her having glasses on and nobody else did either ! lets be honest here.... the woman was shot in the face ! how could a pair of glasses stay on her face after that ? as for the blood on the glasses, I am sure her blood was on everything in that car, Clydes as well..... the article said they fell from her face while being taken from the car to the truck, its funny that this is the only article ever written about it, and its never been mentioned by anyone else in any books or papers...ect, another thing.. Tom hughes was the 1st owner of the glasses since the ambush, this article is from the Shreveport journal..... the same town that Mr Hughes just happened to be sheriff of, hmmmm..... I wonder if there is a connection ? lol.... well folks, this is just another one of those questions we will never know the real answer to, I cannot hang my hat on just this one article and these are just my opinions, you be the judge for yourself, as for Bonnie and the glasses, only her hair dresser would know for sure ! a list of the owners of the glasses courtesy of the worlds greatest Bonnie and Clyde website.... Frank Ballinger's texas hideout, thank you very much Frank for all of your very hard work and research all these years !
T. (Tom) R. Hughes, Sheriff of Caddo Parish, Shreveport, Louisiana, was the original owner of the
Parker "death glasses". In 1938, the glasses were presented to Art O. Olson of 1345 East 29th,
Tulsa, Oklahoma by Sheriff Hughes through a third party named Cecil C. Harberson. In later
years, A.O. Olson gave them to D.A. Bryce who passed away in 1974. Bryce's niece, the
administrator of the Bryce estate, returned the glasses to A.O. Olson in 1976.
