Amazingly, Randy became convinced that one of the men in the photograph was Billy the Kid, the iconic celebrity of America’s Wild West. “You could put a Winchester rifle in his hands,” he told The Guardian in 2015. “It was the hat, the stance, him leaning on a croquet stick. I thought, my lord, it’s Billy the Kid,” he added.
Stunned, Randy summoned Linda, and the pair began investigating deeper. What’s more, when they discovered that two other men in the photograph were the spitting images of Charlie Bowdre and Tom O’Folliard – both members of Billy’s notorious gang the Regulators – they knew they were on to something big.
