He was known as The Islander (El Isleno). He fought in WWI and then settled in Key West. But his relationship with a mulatto woman caused the KKK to tar and feather him. In retaliation, he shot and killed one of them on Duval Street on Christmas Eve. The next day, a posse removed him from jail and lynched and shot him.
