Fascinating case, I feel like I am watching a silent film western as this type of story would not at all be an unusual one for the silver screen back in the early to mid-1920's.
So I wonder if one of his descendents has an actual photo of him? That reconstruction is incredible given how old this case is.
My favourite game, Red Dead Redemption 2, is based on this era. It’s an amazing world they have created and I can spend hours on my horse travelling around the different townships and terrains, pursuing anything from bootlegging to bounty hunting. You can be good or bad.
This story captured my interest today, it’s the sort of tale that would be weaved into the game.
His head being missing makes me suspect, like others here, that he was killed for a bounty. It would be used as proof of death, either for lawmen or an outlaw gang. He may have been shot in the head too, as no bullets or other fatal injuries are reported on his body. Likely dismembered to stow the remains in a bag that could be carried by horse to the cave.
