Butch Cassidy | Infamous Mormons

An infamous Mormon who repeatedly ran afoul of the law during his childhood, Butch Cassidy began as a petty thief before moving onto cattle rustling and other more serious crimes. His infamy grew when this infamous Mormon helped in the robbery of a Rio Grande train which netted him and his gang $70,000. He moved to Bolivia to try and live the rest of his days in peace, but Cassidy was restless and was soon back to crime; it may be the case that it was the thrill of the crime, not the money, that appealed to Butch in the end.
