WED 10

He was born into poverty and mocked for his hardscrabble rural background. As a lad he shocked fellow villagers by getting in trouble with authorities. They tried to kill him numerous times. Cyanide had no effect on him. He avoided being run over by a wagon. When he got shot, he jumped to his feet and tried to kill his attacker. Shot again, he still refused to die. Finally he was captured, bound, and tossed into an icy river.
