Billy the Kid?

This photo of Brushy Bill by the alleged grave of Billy the Kid was taken by William Morrison on July 6, 1950; almost sixty-nine years to the day of Billy the Kid's alleged death. Brushy told Morrison at Sumner that day, "They think they've got me there, buried like an outlaw with my feet to the west, but that won't get it. They didn't get me yet, they didn't."
