BILLY THE KID KILLED: Only four months after escaping from jail Billy the Kid was killed by Pat Garrett. Some people ask did Garrett really kill the kid? Or did he shoot someone and say it was him? However the legend is that Garrett shot Billy twice with a revolver. He had a bullet just above the heart. Several women carried his body to a carpenter shop. They dressed him in a oversized shirt. The town buried him in the Fort Summer Cemetery the nest day. Admirers put together #208 for a gravestone. It was later broken into pieces and stolen.
