HENRY STARR'S BANK LOOT
THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST
STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST
Where is Henry Starr’s Bank Loot?
Henry Starr was the nephew of the famous bandit Belle
Starr, he was known all around Arkansas, Oklahoma and Kansas as The Cherokee Bad
Boy. He first started his criminal habits in 1892, in Oklahoma along with gang,
which included Frank Cheney, Kid Wilson and Happy Jack, among others. They
robbed stores, banks and train depots all throughout Oklahoma during 1892. In
December 1892, the Cherokee Bad Boy shot and killed US Deputy Marshall Floyd
Wilson while he was trying to arrest him. Only after one year of these devious
crimes, seven members of the gang were dead. The only remaining members in the
summer of 1893 were Kid Wilson and Henry Starr, the Cherokee Bad Boy himself.
During a quiet vacation in Colorado Springs with
his new wife on July 3, 1893, Cherokee Bad Boy and Kid Wilson were arrest. AT
this time, the Starr gang had stolen $20,000 but when captured only $500 in gold
and $1,460 in cash were retrieved. He was sentenced to death, however, Theodore
Roosevelt commuted his sentence and he was back at his criminal career by 1904.
For a while, the Cherokee Bad Boy seemed content
but with other states such as Arkansas trying their best to extradite him for
crimes he had committed in their state he hid in the Osage Hills, where he found
some of his old partners in crime. Once again, bank robberies were abundant in
the state of Oklahoma and Starr was once again arrested. He was given a parole
in 1913, with the stipulation never to return to Oklahoma.
However, nothing stopped the likes of the Cherokee
Bad Boy, the worst bank robberies in history of Oklahoma occurred in 1914 in
Tulsa, Oklahoma. While robbing a bank in Stroud, Oklahoma in March of 1915,
Starr was shot and arrested. He was sentenced up to 25 years in prison but was
paroled in only 4 years.
He decided to clean up his act and began producing
movies, the first one being the Stroud robbery. This career seemed to take off
with other bank robbery movies. He became very popular and movie companies asked
him to stage bank robberies for their movies. However, the Cherokee Bad Boy had
bank robbery in his blood and this good clean career did not last long. While
filming a movie in Stroud, Oklahoma he robbed the bank in Chandler, Oklahoma and
then another one in Davenport, Oklahoma. He still wanted to stage bank robberies
and was negotiating with a California film company when he was shot and killed,
yes robbing a bank. On February 23, 1921 in Harrison, Arkansas, the Cherokee Bad
Boy would not rob another bank.
During his 32-year career of bank robberies, he
robbed around 21 banks and stole loot in the amount of $60,000. The only words
that have been spoken concerning the whereabouts of any of the stolen banks
money were uttered by Starr himself with his early robberies. He stated the
money was hidden “...near the border in a place nobody could find it in a
million years.” It is believed that the goods are hidden in Stevens County,
Kansas somewhere along the Cimarron River.
