Thanks for sharing this.I enjoyed your articulate analysis of the known facts and possible permutations of how Ringo might have met his death.Everybody loves historic mysteries!
There are dozens of theories based on speculation of what the coroners report didn't say, some theories are speculations upon priovious speculations. Some are based on the refusal to accept that a dangerous "gunman" could kill himself and yet there are numerous suicides among outlaws with no percieved way out. I view this video as not another theory but more as a question of accepting the coroners report at face value.
That was excellent, and I believe quite accurate. By July 1882, Ringo had truly lost his place in life. His family had distanced themselves from him, his closest friends were dead, his enemies had left town and he turned more and more in the bottle. Given to the DTs and delusions; this psychotic, depressed drunkard shot himself.
Thanks for the kind words.
That was great, although he was actually seated in the forks of the tree which formed a sort of seat(and no cowboy or outlaw would ride a horse colored like that lol).
The great thing about that horse, if you look at his front shoulder you can see the american continent.
