Did Butch Cassidy die in Spokane, Wash 1937?

Legend has it that this infamous outlaw died in Bolivia in 1908. DNA results from what is believed to have been the grave where he was buried, reviels it was NOT Butch Cassidy but a European. B.C's relatives insist he visited them on their ranch near Circleville, Utah in 1925.

A manuscript has now been released, "Bandit Invincible: The Story of Butch Cassidy" dated 1934 by William T. Phillips, a machinist who died in Spokane, Washington in 1937. There seems to be documented facts within this old transcript that only Butch Cassidy could have known.

What are your thoughts?

I think that now days there would never be any questions about things like this. They have so many techniques to ID people these days, finger prints, DNA, photo digital comparing and what not. Back then criminals could get away with murder and bank/train robbery.

What do you think, are these two guys one & the same?

Just learned this as a person who lives within 60 miles of Spokane. It's an armpit so it could use the publicity!
