An outlaw who rode with Robert “Butch Cassidy” Parker and Harry “Sundance Kid” Longabaugh, Kid Curry, a.k.a. Harvey Logan, reportedly killed nine men and possibly as many as 15. Historians debate whether or not a Texan named Tom Capehart committed some of those killings—although authors Mark Smokov and Jeffrey Burton state this is a piece of fiction from Charles Kelly. Given his reputation for violence, especially when drinking, he was rightfully described as the “wildest of the Wild Bunch.”
