      Roy B. Young confirmed what Wyatt and others thought. Assassin: The premeditated act of killing someone suddenly or secretively, especially a prominent person.

              Joyce, We could go back and forth on this for days and never agree. I honestly believe that the McLaurys were ranchers, but I believe the Clantons, at least the "Old Man" and Ike, were as my mother wo... more

          Have you read Roy Young's WWHA Journal article Who Killed Morgan Earp? or seen the WWHA YouTube video on the same topic? It is more than just" Wyatt's Thoughts". https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oiW... more
