He shot and killed Milton M. Collins of Kearney Nebraska in sep. 1875 but was not convicted of murder . I am convinced that he must have had some friends in high places because it sure seems like someone is protecting him.
Someone who might have had a financial stake in Smith's cattle buisness. I dont know a lot about Texan history in this time . So feel free to inlighten me .
