January 29, Wednesday afternoon
Outside Douglas, Wyoming, Charlie pulls over in the Ward car and stops by a car parked alongside the road. Walks over, shoots the driver in the head eight times, and gets in his car to flee. A deputy sheriff stops not far away. Caril runs to the cop car, gets in, and says Starkweather is going to kill her.
Charlie tears off in the Ward car and a chase ensures with the Douglas police chief and the county sheriff barreling after him at speeds of 110 miles an hour through the badlands. The police chief is firing a pistol; the sheriff is leaning out the window and firing his with his .30-.30. Charlie finally quits the chase. Around 3:30, both Charlie and Caril are now in custody. The killing is over.
