The Trinity River Massacre

The Trinity River Massacre

It spawned the biggest manhunt since Bonnie and Clyde, but few today remember that bloody night in 1971.

Rene Guzman and Leonardo Lopez lived in West Dallas and supported their drug habits with burglary. Someone in Ellis County had seen them in action and written down the plate number on Guzman’s car. That’s what brought the sheriff’s deputies to their door at 2810 Ingersoll Street on February 15, 1971, the day after Valentine’s.
