There Comes a Reckoning
Murdered after staking the Tibbs and McReedy claim
A prospector who lived in tent-city until he and John McReedy struck gold in Shady Vale near Night Crawler Creek.
Found with his throat slit, rolled in a carpet on the back of a mule shortly after filing the claim in Cheyenne. Jim Horner and William “Trick” Holloway were caught leading the donkey through an alley in the dead of night. Both men claimed to have stumbled upon the donkey and its gruesome load.
Horner and Holloway have done work for Jake Kilburn on occasion.
Curtis Tibbs was last seen alive at the Nugget.
