When some radicals in the powerful Wyoming Stock Growers Association turned to this dead shot for help, cattle thieves were duly warned; blood was shed and Horn was implicated but never charged. Then on July 18, 1902, Willie Nickell, the fourteen-year-old son of a sheepman, was shot. Horn was convicted, but his hanging did not settle the specter of guilt.
