1899 Sneffels Stage Robbery and the Death of Kid Adams

On October 2nd, the Sneffels Stage was robbed as it transported mail and gold bullion from Camp Bird to Ouray, Colorado. The bandits were pursued relentlessly, but one managed to escape after many days dodging the law. The other, a young man known as "Kid Adams" was not so lucky, and was killed by a deputy. This was not the end of the story though, as it was determined that the deputy murdered Adams rather than bring him in to face charges.
