    After John Marston kills Bill Williamson, Dutch van der Linde and killing or capturing Javier Escuela, he allows Marston to return home to his family. However, after a while he returns to the Marston ranch and along with the US Army, he launches an assault on Marston and his family. He eventually kills Marston and leaves the body for the rest of his family to find.

    Three years later, he has retired from the Bureau and had won a chestful of medals after taking credit for killing all four members of Dutch's gang.
