In January 1932, ten local lawmen approached two brothers in an isolated Missouri farmhouse. Minutes later, six officers were dead (the highest number of law enforcement officers killed on a single day until 11 September 2001,) three were wounded and the outlaws escaped. After a wild car chase through Oklahoma and across Texas, police finally surrounded Harry and Jennings Young in their Houston hideout. The brutal killings attracted national press (at first Pretty Boy Floyd was rumoured to be involved,) and these events are still debated in southern Missouri today.
