Why do you say that? The descriptions of the bodies are decent matches. I don't know of anything in the report that is an "a ha" indication either was someone else

Anecdotal claims notwithstanding

    I know of two graves we will not find them in LOL As far as them being buried in San Vicente? Not so sure. Looking at the inquest papers, it is not Butch and SK buried there.

        Vince, I guess the inquest is open to some interpretation, but what makes you think it was them? Their description does not make me think it was them. best, Chris

          i don't have anne' book handy but the descriptions as i recall fundamentally sound like them, SD having gained weight. Now anecdotally you have tales of people allegedly seeing photos of the bodies... more

            Hi Vince, I too am not able to pull my files out. If I recall correctly, one of the bodies was a short ugly guy. The other, was a tall guy. Which one was Butch and which one was SK exactly? Werent... more

              I don't remember one being short or described as "ugly" in the docs. Give Bob some time to see this and he will post the descriptions, I'll bet

                  Bob, Both appear to have turned up noses in their description. Butch didnt and Sundance had a Roman nose. Not seeing how any of this would make you say that is the outlaws. Can you please explain?... more

                    Pat, Only four? :) There was only one real Butch, and that was Bob Parker, that that being said, the term "Butch Cassidy" by 1900 was already being used as much as a title than as an actual name.... more

                      I was referring to the actually 4 men arrested in the area of SV at time of of robbery.. One A.G.Francris identified was Butch.He was let go.

                  OK, it does describe Butch as "a bit ugly" Strange thing to say about him as he was good looking so I see Chris' point on that. Not sure how they are defining the word "ugly" (how that word, whatever ... more

                  thanks Bob. In Birdseye or I would have looked it up. That is the description I remember. What makes people think that description describes Butch and Sundance? They are within one inch of each other ... more

                    SD putting on weight would be perfectly appropriate for an alcoholic letting himself go, which he seemed to be doing

                      The weight is possible. However, what about the height? A one inch difference is barely noticeable. You certainly would not use the terms like the "short one" "tall one" for that small of difference. ... more
