He went into business with Shotgun Johnnie Heilshorn. One night a matron working at the hospital on late duty heard a strange noise in the graveyard and was able to make out the forms of two men carrying a casket away from the cemetery into the morgue. She informed authorities, who the next day, opened a freshly disturbed grave and found a body robbed of its casket. Although the greedy "ghouls" were brought to trial for reselling caskets and corpse clothing, the articles could not be identified so they went free. Retribution overtook both of them. Shotgun Johnny was found dead in an opium parlor and Big Bill was shot by an "unknown assailant." Both ended up in Boot Hill.
