"I didn't do it"

Steve claims that Butch did not do the Castle Gate Robbery, in part because Butch claimed to a reporter that he didn't do it, and that he had no reason to lie. But then Steve goes on to say that he did commit the Montpelier Bank Robbery, but ignores the fact that Butch also claimed that he didn't do that one either as reported in both the Salt Lake Herald Sept 17 1896, and the Salt Lake Tribune Sept 18, 1896. One could assume that he had no reason to lie that time ether. He could have told the young traveling salesmen that he did do it, and still have been able to ride away unmolested. Steve and I have discussed this before, and have decided to agree to disagree on this.
