I have been reading articles on the internet ( Lots of them) on this subject and don't really know for sure which way to believe? I want to think he was Billy the Kid though! I have been to the graveyard at Ft. Sumner N.M. and have seen the word PALS inscribed in the headstone there which makes me think he was still alive and someone else buried there? That would be a true pal to come back and take a chance on getting caught just to pay thosae last respects to your friends! What do ya'll think?
