Charlie Bowdre (inset and at far left) rode with Billy the Kid and cowboyed around the Fort Sumner, New Mexico, area. Newly-elected sheriff Pat Garrett met with Bowdre and warned him to quit the owl hoot trail, but Bowdre didn’t listen. He ended up dead at Stinking Springs when Garrett’s posse shot him. The lawmen found this photo (above), of Bowdre with his querida Manuela, in his clothing; the blood stains are Bowdre’s.
