LAWMAN: Joe LeFors:
There were many lawmen in the West who gained fame in their days, including Pat Garrett, Bat Masterson and Heck Thomas.
Joe LeFors was made famous as the persistent lawman in the white hat in the movie Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid,
referenced by the oft-repeated line: "Who is that guy?" "That guy" was LeFors.
Although he did pursue the Wild Bunch, his most famous exploit was tricking Tom Horn into a confession,
which led Horn to being hanged. LeFors lived to old age and wrote a manuscript about his life.
