Thread Name: Lyr Req: The Crime of the D'Autremont Brothers
Subject: RE: D'Autremont Bros. Train Robbery song search
An historical note, the song is usually spelled as in the thread title but the correct spelling of the family name is "DeAutremont" with an "e" instead of "'" One of the brothers was paroled in 1958 and died of cancer in 1959. Another was paroled in 1961. Both had been model prisoners. The third was deemed insane and committed to an assylum.
