porcelain sinks and she died. The other women cried and Mallory called
and Mickey came to the restroom. After he has seen what happened he
pulled out his gun and shot the women dead. In the cafeteria they both
killed the other guests and only one survived. This event was later
called the "Kankakee Massacre".

After this Mallory and Mickey had to flew. The where hunted by police
and specially by Detective Jack Scagnetti. On their escape from police

the let one witness alive. After some weeks the become popular in the
USA and some fans of them founded fan clubs. Mallory and Mickey married

interviewed Mickey, Mickey could open his handcuff took a gun from a
police officer, killed Jack Scagnetti and took Wayne Gale and his
cameraman as a hostage. The camera - man had to film the rescue of
Mallory. The people could see it live on TV. After Mickey and Mallory
killed some police officer and escaped with Wayne and the camera - man in
a transporter. After some days Mickey killed Wayne and the camera - man
filmed it.

Mickey and Mallory Knox are currently still at large, although the FBI
investigation as to their whereabouts continues. Their official fan
club, the Owen Traft Society, has a membership of over 15 000, who each
pay $35 a year for a newsletter and memorabilia relating to the two.

Ideas: The Author wants to show us how people are sensationalism about
gruel in the world.
Opinions: I like the book because it is interesting to read about the
life of
two persons who had to escape the police.
