Did I dream this?
Tue Jul 3, 2018 15:44

In my deteriorating memory banks is recollection of either me or somebody else posting an interview with Colton Marshal Virgil Earp about a suspicious death in which Virg opines that the death in question may have been a set up to make it appear Indians had done it like what had happened to John Ringo. I can't find anything like this anywhere. My memory, such as it is, also is certain that "moccasins" are mentioned in the article, in reference to the more current murder, not Ringo's.

      Bob Yes that was in an interview with Virgil. I will try and find it.

        I had thought I had seen it on the California Digital Newspapers site, but can't find it there or on Chronicling America.

            Thank you Peter. That's the one. It's been driving me crazy, trying to find it. Interesting that he assumes Ringo was a victim of homicide and that he tries to suggest that Ringo was engaged in some... more

          Bob The one I saw was from Chronicling America but I cannot reopen it on old iPad. Maybe a search in archives here might find it. However, we might be talking about different articles. This one was... more

            This is what I had always thought of it, and caused me lean towards some sort of suspicious play going on. It's the same method that Black Bart used when robbing stages in Northern California. He... more

              What with Ringo's premonition of death, it must have been pretty scary if he knew Buckskin Frank was closing in on him. Billy Claiborne said: "Frank Leslie murdered John Ringo. I helped him carry... more

                  M. Dworkin wrote that the inquest jury members never mentioned Ringo. But I fail to see any relevance to that. They did establish that Claiborne accused Frank Leslie of being a murderer. Although he... more

                    K Iím reading the latest book on Buksmith Frank Leslie, and of course it covers this. They donít think he shot Ringo. The book raised some interesting points.
