Biography[edit | edit source]

The cowboy was a town local from Newt in Muerto County, Texas. In 1973, he was one of several people who came to a graveyard after reports began filing in about incidents of vandalism and grave robbing. He was seen in the early morning hours sitting in the back of a pick-up truck drinking beer with a bearded man. A young woman named Sally Hardesty approached him, inquiring as to whether the grave of her grandfather had been one of the ones that had been vandalized. The cowboy directed her to the County Sheriff, Rhesus Maldonado, who was standing nearby and told her that he would be able to confirm whether the grave had been dug up. [1]
