(Fox News) – The above photo provided by Frank Abrams of North
Caroline shows what historians believe is a photo of outlaw Billy
the Kid, second from left, and Pat Garrett, far right, taken in 1880.  Abrams, who bought the photo at a flea market in 20011 for $10,
says forensics experts and facial recognition have verified the
picture after several months of examination. It could be worth 
millions of dollars.
