I think we all know what happened to Etta...
Thu Dec 21, 2017 8:55pm


If Etta Place died in a South America shootout, as at least one eye witness account suggests, that would explain the guilt that ultimately led Butch and Sundance to a murder-suicide compact. Remember, she was their capable partner in crime, then vanished. I have not yet seen conclusive evidence that she returned safely to San Francisco or anywhere else.

            Mark, What a story, and all in a brief 61 years. The inspirations for James Bond are many, including Ian Fleming himself: Dan

        The murder suicide wasn't Butch and Sundance. One of Vince's many deaths of EP may be right. Another possibility was not on the list.

          Reading the inquest, I agree. It was not Butch and Sundance.
