Description

Outlaw Butch Cassidy, also known as Robert Leroy Parker, partnered with the Sundance Kid to rob banks and trains in the early 1900s.  In 1900, Butch Cassidy partnered with Harry Longabaugh, nicknamed the “Sundance Kid,” to rob banks and trains as leaders of the Wild Bunch, a group of outlaws. They eluded police by escaping to South America. In 1906, they returned to crime. It is believed they were trapped and killed by police in Bolivia in 1908, but reports vary.
