While I absolutely do not care what became of Connor, especially whether he became "paragon", I wish to
ponder over an innocent young Shoshone.

In "This Day in History" there is interesting relation about a man allegedly bearing a name of "PUGWEENEE" there.
Later information revealed that the alleged name of the already hung young Shoshone is a word in their language used for a word "fish" in English language.
If, perhaps rightly, somebody bestowed with a sound mind had assumed that the word allegedly being the hanged man's name was not a name at all, the story might be different.
If, as indicated, PUGWEENEE is the Shoshone word for "fish" in English language, why nobody were interested in checking the place where he was fishing?
Soft sediment and sand at the bottom of the river might have given the clue as to the whereabouts of the horse or at least a direction in which the horse was taken away. If there were no footprints belonging to the Shoshone, he was innocent.

So, who cares about Connor?
I do not.
