Do not fill this in!==Origin== Born Henry McCarthy and called William H. Bonney, most people just know him simply as Billy the Kid. Orphaned at an early age, the infamous outlaw began his criminal career as a lawful farmhand who killed a blacksmith during a scuffle. Thus, started his pattern of getting violently involved in scrapes and subsequently fleeing the local marshals. At least eight deaths are directly attributed to his handiwork, ranging from drunkards to lawmen. Renowned for his precision shooting in any situation, the Kid tried avenging his friend John Tunstall after he was murdered by competing Lincoln County ranchers. Bonney agreed several times to testify for an amnesty agreement, but always ditched his wardens whenever an opportunity appeared. During one escape, he killed two sheriff’s deputies and brought himself to the full attention of the law. Several months of hiding culminated in his shooting by Sheriff Pat Garrett, who previously captured Bonney. Due to his legendary status as a 21-year-old, straight-shooting cattle rustler who riled both criminals and officials, Billy the Kid has been immortalized as an American icon. Some experts even argue Billy escaped his supposed death, living on long after the frontier closed.
