Like any other state in the Wild West, Oregon has seen its share of prospectors, cattle ranchers, and saloons-along with the predictable accompaniment of robbers, rustlers, and con men. The stateÆs last train robbery, poorly planned and executed by the inept DeAutremont brothers, left the perpetrators empty-handed and eventually earned all three life sentences. Notorious road agent Black Bart followed the gold dust trail from California up through Oregon, mining stagecoaches along the way. And violent criminal Carl Panzram escaped from an Oregon prison twice, only to become one of the nationÆs worst serial killers.
