If Pat Garrett didn't kill Billy the Kid on that night long ago in Fort Sumner, New Mexico, then obviously the Kid lived on to be someone else, no doubt under another alias. Indeed, it would have been extremely likely that he would have adopted another name to live his new life under since he had shown such a propensity for adopting alias' for most of his life. In June of 1949, enter William Henry “Brushy Bill’ Roberts – who claimed to be Billy the kid. Probate investigator William V. Morrison agreed to interview Brushy Bill, and Brushy admitted to him that he truly was Billy the Kid. During the next few days, Brushy Bill told Morrison about his life on the run, and the one and only woman who had ever stolen his heart. In THE LEGEND OF BRUSHY BILL: A WILD WEST LOVE STORY, author Brian Lee tucker uncovers the REAL story behind Billy the Kid’s miraculous survival from the gunshot wound that should have killed him – and a love story that seemed it would defy all odds until fate, most cruelly, intervened.
