    John Ringo achieved a reputation as a notorious and dangerous man in Texas based on his link to the Hoodoo War which peaked in violence during 1875. Around 1879, Johnny Ringo drifted West to Arizona, where the notorious cowboy became the chief antagonist of Wyatt Earp, and received more notoriety before his death in July 1882. For more than a century, controversy has swirled about the details of Ringo's demise, making his death one of the most hotly debated deaths in Old West history.
