Mildred Goes To Pieces - On November 9, 1949 Mildred picked up the keys and headed out to the car for a day of running errands and shopping. She knew her husband Herbert "The Cat" Noble and rival gangster Benny "Cowboy" Binion were not getting a long. She didn't know Binion had a contract out on her husband. When she turned the ignition switch an electric charge was sent down a wire to a cache of nitroglycerin under the hood. The explosion blew the car to smithereens and Mildred into even smaller pieces. 311 Conrad St. Dallas, TX.
