KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — A gun that once belonged to outlaw Bonnie Parker has sold at auction for $99,450.
The Knoxville News Sentinel reports the winning bidders for the item asked to remain anonymous. More than 300 people attended the event at Case Auctions and Antiques in Knoxville.
The nickel-plated .38 pistol belonged to Bonnie Parker, who was gunned down by police with her lover, Clyde Barrow, in 1934.
The newspaper reports the bid for the gun, bullets and photos from the shooting scene was below an estimated value of $125,000 to $175,000.
The gun was found hidden in Parker's dress by a mortician preparing her body for embalming.
