Last Words For two notables, “Hello, Bob” proved ominous.

Two men, famous in their own times and in their own ways. United in an important way. Bob Ford, gunned down by Ed O’Kelley (photo) on June 8, 1892 in Creede, Colorado. Bob Olinger, shot down by Billy the Kid in Lincoln, New Mexico on April 28, 1881. What’s the connection?

Both victims were hit by shotgun blasts in the neck and head.  And the last words they heard were, “Hello, Bob.”
