No doubt johnny commited suicide. He was reported to be drinking heavily before he was found dead. My theory is that Johnny wandered off drunk and passed out somewhere in the desert where someone stole his boots while unconscious. He wakes up realizing his boots are missing, as well as his horse. This explaines the make shift foot apparel he constructs to walk around trying to find his boots or horse. After realizing he cant show his face back in town without his boots on he commits suicide. Think about it, if you were the most feared and famous cowboy of the time how are you going to show your face back in town without your boots on? He knew if he did all of his credibility would be destroyed, and the legend would have to carry this dubious incident with him forever. No doubt suicide.
