Pretty Boy Floyd's Hideout

You are here Home  > Historical Buildings >  Pretty Boy Floyd's Hideout

Pretty Boy Floyd’s Hideout, a home at 6612 Edgevale in Armor Hills, was the home of Vivian Mathias, gangster Verne Miller’s girlfriend. It was where in June 1933, Miller and Charles “Pretty Boy” Floyd planned their unsuccessful prison break for buddy Frank “Jelly” Nash who, along with two policemen, was shot to death during the attempt. Afterward, the men returned to the house where one of their men died in the attic. For a while, strange things were reported there, including noises from the attic, doors that wouldn’t stay shut (including the attic door) and attic lights that kept coming on. The house was blessed by a minister, and after that, the strange activity stopped.

  1. Hi my name is Cyri Cooley, I live in Kearney Mo. I am on a team of 6 with Central Researches. Our team is based out of the North Kansas City area. Central Paranormal Researchers a responsible team and is a team that researches possible paranormal locations. We go to places to try to find any explanations on the happening to determine if we can debunk the happenings or have proof of paranormal. We recently did an investigation at the Morse Mill hotel. We were able to capture a lot of great evidence. We have investigated several other places as well. Is there a possible way that we could come interview you, or interview us? We are super interested to research Pretty Boy Floyd’s hideout. We would like to find out what the price is to investigate as well as how many people can investigate? Have a wonderful day hope to hear from you soon.
    Thank you,
    Cyri Cooley
