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 him as such. BK had been arrested and accused of initially being SD. The reporter was apparently using the names that were being floated around at the time

    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

        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

                  It's a horrible ID because 1. It wasn't them. 2. the men it was do not look like the men he claimed them to be What do you mean you wouldn't rule anything out? Do you mean you think Butch and SD... more

                    1. How do we know it wasnt them? 2. What makes you think it was OC Hanks and Ben Kilpatrick? I do believe they had something to do with Wagner.
                    • Good work Chris. Pat, Wed Nov 8 1:02pm
                      We don't know who it was. We will never know . And just like all the other robberies in numerous states unless they were caught or shot then no one will ever know. I do think it was Butch with Logan... more

                      That's why i was asking about your perspective. If we presume they were the Wagner robbers, since the rest of us attribute that to hanks, BK and Logan, by default it cannot be BC and SD. So since the ... more
