2. Thomas Custer, from Wikipedia. Custer participated in the arrest of the Lakota Rain-in-the-Face for the 1873 murder of Dr. John Honsinger. It was widely rumored that Rain-in-the-Face, who had escaped from captivity and was a participant at the Little Bighorn, cut out Tom Custer's heart after the battle; though the chief later denied it during an interview. Custer's remains were identified by a recognizable tattoo of his initials on his arm. (Submitted on June 24, 2012, by Mike Stroud of Bluffton, South Carolina.)
