    Do you believe he was Billy The Kid? I've been reading on it for a while and there's some good evidence to support that he was. He had the same scars, spoke fluent Spanish, was able to recall stories and the way buildings looked before they burned, surviving friends of The Kid met with Brushy Bill and all said that they thought it was him. Google it if you're not sure who Brushy Bill is. Some people thought Pat Garrett shot someone else and allowed The Kid to escape, allowing him to live to age 90 under a different name.

    I see there's not a lot of interest in this :icon_surp

    And I'll give that a read.

    I watched a show on him just a few weeks ago and they said the only known picture of Billy the kid does him no justice as far as looks go. By all written accounts he wasn't a bad looking guy like the picture portrays.
