In 1887 U.S. Army Scout “Apache Kid” killed the man who had murdered Togoduchez, his grandfather. On his return to his duty station at San Carlos, an incident led to a court-martial for mutiny and desertion. He was convicted and sentenced to death by the Army, then released on appeal. Later, Kid was arrested and convicted by a civil court for assault to murder. While being transported to Yuma Prison, Kid escaped and was never captured or killed. “Apache Kid” became the renegade of renegades. Presented by Clare (Bud) V. McKanna, Lecturer in the Department of History at San Diego State University.
