Sandy King




Sandy King was an outlaw of the Old West…King was born in either Arkansas or Texas, no one knows for sure…he became involved in cattle rustling and armed robbery…it was around 1879 that he became friends with an hombre by the name of Russian Bill Tattenbaum …it was early 1881 when King was arrested after shooting and wounding a storekeeper…later that year his friend Tattenbaum was captured by vigilantes…after being found guilty for rustling, the two begged for their lives…the vigilantes had their own ideas though and ignored their pleas and lynched both of them…their bodies were left hanging as the pirates of old had done…to warn others not to try the same thing.
