    J.B. "Killer" Miller, Alleged Killer of Pat Garrett: Appearance Bond on the Charge of Murder. Miller was a notorious gunman for hire and hothead credited with at least fourteen gunfights and murders. He is widely regarded as the likely murderer of legendary lawman Pat Garrett, having allegedly been hired to kill him by an enemy of Garrett. There is no question that Miller was at the scene and fired at Pat, but there was no direct evidence that he fired the deadly shots.

    This document probably relates to his murder of Texas sheriff Bud Frazer after a bitter feud. He also killed another sheriff, "Gus Bobbitt," as a hired gun. His fee for the assassination--$2000, no mean sum in those days. He ended his days in 1909 when he was extradited to Ada, Oklahoma on a charge and was promptly lynched by a mob.

    The document measures 8" x 13.5", and is in excellent condition.
