Butch Cassidy (aka Robert Leroy Parker, 1866-1908)

imageButch Cassidy and Harry Longabaugh, the “Sundance Kid,” robbed so many of the Union Pacific’s trains that the railroad company hired the famous Pinkerton National Detective Agency to put a permanent end to their heists. But the detectives only succeeded in pushing the outlaws to South America. It is widely believed that the two were gunned down in Bolivia, although some historians believe that Cassidy sneaked back into the U.S. and lived in anonymity.
