Deadwood Wiki

An unknown prospector came to the gold-mining town of Deadwood, South Dakota in 1876, where he stayed at the Gem Saloon and came to own a gold claim somewhere around the camp. At some point, though, he lost that claim and decided to return home after a night with whore Trixie at the Gem. According to Trixie, during the night he woke up and started beating her, so in self-defense she used a hidden gun to shoot him in the head. The man was able to survive for twenty minutes before Doc Cochran arrived, but died seconds afterwards. After Doc extracted the bullet the man was fed to Mr. Wu's pigs, and Trixie violently punished.[1]
