Below is a photograph of Bill and Luzernia Morrell Long.The pair met while her first husband (Silas Morrell) was still alive, but suffering from serious injuries that would later kill him. They later married and lived in Fremont, Utah for many years farming and living the family life. She had six children with her previous husband and they had 2 daughters together Viola & Evinda. Turns out this was just a pretty great cover story for an Outlaw. All while he was out robbing banks and trains, gambling and drinking with the Wild Bunch and his good buddy Butch.
Long's remains were unearthed, Dr McCullough conducted a physical examination of the bones as well. That analysis revealed that Long may not have committed suicide, as his death certificate stated. McCullough found evidence that the .22-caliber bullet that killed Long entered his skull from an angle that indicates someone else shot him.

"McCullough's photo analysis revealed identical traits in both men -- including a notch in an ear, evidence of a broken nose, and a cleft chin. There are also matches in height, hair color and eye color. The photos below are transparencies of both photos above laying on top of one another. As you can see... The faces match EXACTLY!
