All told, Billy the Kid is said to have killed a total of 21 men, one for each of the years of his life, though this number is often regarded as inaccurate and exaggerated.
Patrick Floyd "Pat" Garrett (June 5, 1850 – February 29, 1908) was an American Old West lawman, bartender, and customs agent who was best known for killing Billy the Kid. He was also the sheriff of Lincoln County, New Mexico
Extremely rare photo of Billy when captured at Stinking Springs, December 24th 1880. Pat Garrett is clearly recognisable extreme left and Bob Olinger is next to him. Billy is on the extreme right where a deputy aims a Colt revolver at Billy's head. One of Billy's compadres, Charlie Bowdre, had been killed in the encounter.
The only known picture of Billy the Kid. It has been cleaned up and we get to see his face clearly for the first time...all reports I have ever read said he was good looking...I don't see it...

Final Resting Place of Billy the Kid.
BILLY THE KID (William H. Bonney, William Henry McCarty, 1859-1881). American gunman and frontier outlaw. Legend claims he killed 21 men, but most likely it was somewhere between 4 to 9. Relatively unknown during his brief lifetime, his status grew to legendary proportions after his death at age 21. The Kid was killed by lawman Pat Garrett.
