Born in the Ozarks, Ma Barker, claimed by J. Edgar Hoover to have been the matriarch and mastermind of the Barker-Karpis Gang, was never arrested prior to her death in 1935. Her life has served as inspiration for characters such as Ma Fratelli in Steven Spielberg’s The Goonies. Ma Barker and her son, Fred, died after an hours-long shootout with the FBI. The gunfire drew locals, some of whom picnicked.
We hope those folks were sipping coffee even half as
good as Ma Sweet.
