#62 The One With Toni Jo Hood

Episode 62:

"The Tale of the Baddest Girl of the Bayou"

Originally born in Louisiana under a different name, Toni Jo Hood was working in a brothel in the late 1930s, when she met Cowboy Henry, a prize fighter and crime syndicate enforcer. The couple married quickly, despite the fact that Cowboy was currently facing a murder conviction for killing a off duty police officer. When Cowboy was found guilty and sentenced to 50 years in prison, Toni Jo knew she had to do something to be with her beloved, sooner rather than later. Her plan was simple enough: get guns, money and a fast car and find a way to break Cowboy out. But the execution of the plan didn't go very well and ended with Toni Jo facing a murder charge of her own.
