Ellison "Cotton Top" Mounts, who was believed to be the son of Ellison Hatfield, was sentenced to death. Nicknamed Cottontop, Mounts was known to be mentally challenged, and many viewed him as a scapegoat even though he had confessed his guilt. Although public executions were against the law in Kentucky, thousands of spectators gathered to witness the hanging of Ellison Mounts on February 18, 1890.

Moe Greene = Benjamin "Bugsy" Siegel (February 28, 1906 – June 20, 1947) was a Jewish American mobster. Siegel was known as one of the most "infamous and feared gangsters of his day". Described as handsome and charismatic, he became one of the first front-page-celebrity gangsters. He was also a driving force behind the development of the Las Vegas Strip. Siegel was not only influential within the Jewish mob but, like his friend and fellow gangster Meyer Lansky, he also held significant influence within the Italian-American Mafia and the largely Italian-Jewish National Crime Syndicate.

This picture is of Pearl Hart. She doesn't even look like the other average females known in the Wild West. Pearl's rugged look definitely explains her role as being known for a Canadian Stagecoach robber. By her being a female, her crime stood out to everyone. Pearl served 2years in prison due to her robberies.

THE LADY OUTLAW, PEARL HART : The women of the Old West were resilient. . .they could ride and rope with the best of them, and they could shoot a gun, rustle cattle and rob a stagecoach too. ROB A STAGECOACH???!!! Yup, women could become outlaws too, and case in point is a lady named Pearl Hart.

Lizzie Borden Murder Case Gets New Look With Discovery of Her Lawyer's Journals. Lizzie Andrew Borden (July 19, 1860 – June 1, 1927) was a woman in New England who was tried for killing her father and stepmother with a hatchet on August 4, 1892, in Fall River, Massachusetts. “Lizzie Borden took an axe. She gave her mother forty whacks. When she saw what she had done, she gave her father forty-one.”
120-year old journals surface detailing new evidence in the Lizzie Borden ax murder case.
This cold case has some new evidence that might acquit Lizzy Borden of any suspicion surrounding the death of her family. The question remains: Who did it? O.o

Wyatt Earp Was a PIMP! They supply what the newspaper doesn't. On 26 February, a Monday, Police Officer McWhirter was issued a warrant for the arrest of Wyatt Earp, Morgan Earp and George Randall which he served and then brought the trio into Judge Cunningham's court. The charges were identical for all three men (here I quote the leading line of Wyatt's charge sheet):

"Holliday was once asked if his killings had ever gotten on his conscience and was reported to have said, “I coughed my conscience up with my lungs, years ago.” But Kate Harony, his long-time companion, remembered a different Doc Holliday, saying that after the gunfight at the O.K. Corral, he came back to their room and wept."

John Henry "Doc" Holliday was a gambler and a gunman and loyal friend to Wyatt Earp. He was born in Georgia in 1851 and it is believed he graduated from a dental college in Pennsylvania or Maryland around 1872. He practiced dentistry for a short time in Atlanta and Griffin, Georgia. It was in the early 1870's that Doc developed his chronic cough and other symptoms of pulmonary tuberculosis, the same disease that killed his mother. He headed West to drier climate in 1873.

Pictured above are Harry Longabaugh (A.K.A. the "Sundance Kid") and Etta Place. Etta Place disappeared from history in the early 1900's. The big question, of course, is whether Butch Cassidy and Longabaugh were in fact killed in Bolivia in 1908. Some speculate they faked their deaths in order to live out the rest of their lives in peace and quite.

John Wesley Hardin (May 26, 1853—August 19, 1895) was an outlaw and gunfighter of the American Old West. He was born in Bonham, Fannin County, Texas. When Hardin went to prison in 1878, he claimed to have killed 42 men.
