Butch and Sundance weren’t the only Old West outlaws who headed for South America.
George West Musgrave did it—and made a fortune. In the mid 1890s, Musgrave joined the High Fives Gang, rustling and robbing through the southwest for a number of years. He also gunned down a former Texas Ranger in 1896; he was tried and acquitted of that in 1910. Through that time, he used around a dozen aliases
Musgrave headed to Paraguay in 1912 where he built a huge cattle operation and, it’s believed, ran an organized crime syndicate. He died there in 1947.
