It was the largest bank robbery at the time but no one was ever convicted. You can find more information in a book called "The Queen Of Lace" Chapter 5 "The Great Heist" by Stephen L. Trampe.

THE GASSAWAY GANG

They were a large family who robbed stagecoaches in California during the 1860s to finance the Confederate cause during the war. The mother would use a mirror to signal her clan that a stage was approaching. The old man was sentenced to six years in San Quentin and one of his sons was sentenced to three years. The parents were born in Kentucky and the children were born in Missouri, some sources say Lewis County and others say St.Louis, Independent City, Missouri.

Heavyweight Fighter Gets Robbed In St.Louis

September 22, 1995
Heavyweight fighter Oliver McCall was robbed of a check that amounted $1,405,238, his earnings from an unsuccessful fight to keep his WBC title September 2 in London. According to police, McCall and his wife were on a flight from Las Vegas when they had a quarrel. In Kansas City, McCall decided to take a bus to St.Louis. When he arrived, he had trouble getting a cab so he accepted a ride from two men. Once in the car, he began to doubt the sincerity of the pair, so he hopped out in Cochran Gardens Public Housing complex. It was 3 a.m and three men were waiting, one had a pistol. The three took $400 in cash and the paycheck McCall had stashed in his sock. Police quickly arrested two of the suspects and recovered the check, which had been signed by promoter Don King. The suspects were released when McCall refused to press charges. In fact, when reached by the St.Louis Post Dispatch at his downtown hotel, McCall denied there had been a robbery. "Man, I don't know what you're talking about," he said. "I love St.Louis. What robbery? I wasn't robbed."
