Last Wild Bunch outlaw

Wild Bunch outlaw Bub Meeks helped Butch and Elzy Lay rob the bank in Montpelier, Idaho, in 1896. But the pathologically unlucky Meeks was captured and sent to prison. He escaped but was recaptured. He tried to kill himself in prison and was sent to an Idaho insane asylum, from which he successfully escaped. His family was tougher, though: They committed him to the Wyoming asylum in Evanston, where he died in 1912—the last of the Wild Bunch.
