Did Butch survive?

Did Butch Cassidy, the notorious Old West outlaw who most historians believe perished in a 1908 shootout in Bolivia, actually survive that battle and live to old age, peacefully and anonymously, in Washington state? And did he pen an autobiography detailing his exploits while cleverly casting the book as biography under another name?

A rare books collector says he has obtained a manuscript with new evidence that may give credence to that theory. The 200-page manuscript, "Bandit Invincible: The Story of Butch Cassidy," which dates to 1934, is twice as long as a previously known but unpublished novella of the same title by William T. Phillips, a machinist who died in Spokane in 1937

================

Very interesting. I wish I could get my hands on the manuscript to read it. It is not surprising to me that Butch Cassidy could have had two sides to his personality: one the outlaw and the other the kind, generous, understanding man. They might not be necessarily mutually exclusive. In any case, I would love to see some sort of DNA work done on this theme, perhaps with Phillips relatives.

I love a good mystery. It doesn't really matter if it's true or not.

Recent genetic analysis by the FBI
demonstrates that Butch Cassidy
was DB Cooper's grandfather.
