William H. Bonney (born William Henry McCarty, Jr), better known as Billy the Kid, was a 19th-century American gunman who participated in the Lincoln County War and became a frontier outlaw in the American Old West. Contemporaries described him as a "neat" dresser who favored an "unadorned Mexican sombrero". These qualities, along with his cunning and celebrated skill with firearms, contributed to his paradoxical image as both a notorious outlaw and beloved folk hero.
Today he is most popularly known as Billy the Kid but he was born William Henry McCarty Jr. And there has always been a big question. Did he die at the hands of Pat Garrett or did he live on to old age.
