      And prior to the robbery, they seem to have been helped by the notorious "Latrine Liz," a Malta saloon girl about which I wish I knew more!

        Hi Vince, I find it interesting the eyewitness did not name Curry as he didnt know, he was being honest. He did name Cassidy and Longabaugh. Interesting as well that it happened prior to the robbery. ... more

          He probably didn't name cassidy and longabaugh. That was likely an inference by the reporter. Deaf Charley had just had his escape in Nashville, was presumed to be BC, and the papers were reporting... more

            Vince, Im sorry, but I disagree. This was two weeks after the robbery. Nashville was later. Ben Kilpatrick hadnt been arrested in St. Louis yet. best, Chris

              You're right! I'm sorry. I was looking at the date of your posting and my brain was confusing it for the article date. That being said, one can only guess why he got the names wrong. Obviously the... more

                No problem Vince. You are usually right on :) Following tradition doesn't make a lot of sense to me. Not saying your wrong, but why would he say he only knew two of the three. Someone who wants to be ... more

                  That's the only guess I can make to attribute his horrible ID of the two men. If he personally knew butch and sd, how could he make such a horrible ID? The four don't look alike. Kiklpatrick... more

                    Why is it a horrible ID? There is no other eyewitness saying they see Butch and SK anywhere else. Including Argentina. Zero eyewitnesses there. I wouldn't rule anything out. I agree it would be... more
