I read that he killed two deputies while escaping from jail. Is that accurate?
Yes, he killed James W. Bell and Bob Olinger during an escape to keep from being hung. I wonder how many here put in the same circumstances would have just walked peacefully to the gallows? Billy killed four men on his own. Two in self defense and two escaping jail. He was involved in five shootings where five other men died but bullets were flying from both sides so he really cant be credited with any of those.
