      Hi Ken. There were a few poses taken of the guerrilla killed that
      day who they claimed was Bloody Bill Anderson. We have thoroughly
      analyzed each of these photographs and the body looks like that of a
      man getting ready to go out on the town and shows no bloodstained
      clothes or solid evidence of either entrance or exit wounds. A book
      could be written about these photographs alone and the many questions
      they raise. I share your appreciation for accuracy in history and
      assure you that the more you look into the traditional Bloody Bill
      Anderson stories, the more inaccuracies you will discover. After a
      year of researching and investigating Bloody Bill Anderson's life, I
      have found it is the most fascinating historical study I have ever
      taken part in.
