Part 2 — After their murderous robberies in Columbus, Daniels and West were able to disappear from the clutches of the Ohio law enforcement agencies and they traveled through St. Louis, Nashville, Kentucky and Michigan. Much of their time was spent picking up girls, drinking and doing some small robberies to support their crime spree.
