While this story is missing the second half, the bandits got away eluding a posse of some 400 men who had surrounded them on a farm and also in a swamp. Despite one of the robbers supposedly being shot through the neck I can find no trace of them being caught in the days after the siege. A former Chicago policeman was arrested as a suspect later that year and a group of robbers from several statewide holdups across Michigan were also fingered as the possible culprits. Since none appear to be Eloise inmates I didn't bother to pursue the rest of the story.
