Caption: Fred Bowerman, leader of the four-man gang that tried to rob Southwest Bank on April 24, 1953. Bowerman, 60, was a veteran stick-up man who had reached the FBI's Ten Most Wanted list for a bank holdup in South Bend, Ind., the previous September. Bowerman tried to escape Southwest Bank by using customer Eva Hamilton as a human shield, but officer Melburn Stein shot him at close range as he pushed her out the front door. Bowerman never talked with police and died in City Hospital on May 2. (Post-Dispatch)
