Events of Red Dead Redemption

If the player travels to Coot's Chapel, he will find a Stranger named Alma Horlick who asks if Marston will go and find her soon-to-be husband in Armadillo's Saloon, supposedly hanging out with the musicians there, according to her. At the end of the mission, it is revealed to the player that Peter Turner has in fact, been dead for over 17 years.

Events of Undead Nightmare

During the Undead Nightmare, Peter returns at Odd Fellow's Rest in the mission "Get Back in That Hole, Partner". As Peter rises from his grave, he shouts: "You wanna dance with the devil himself Well here I am!" referring to his gravestone, where it says, "He will never dance with another."


  • His gravestone says "He will never dance with another." This may be a reference to the song "I Saw Her Standing There" by the English rock band The Beatles, which contains the lyrics "I'll never dance with another, since I saw her standing there."
  • The musician referred to him as a "queer fellow". Circa 1911-1914, "queer" was still a common term to describe something or someone that is odd or bizarre, thus further explaining why he was buried in Odd Fellow's Rest.
  • In Undead Nightmare, his grave seems to be in a different spot than in the regular storyline.
  • In Undead Nightmare, while cleansing Odd Fellow's Rest, he cannot be hogtied.
  • In Undead Nightmare, he is referred to as Pete Turner.
  • He has Wyatt Driggers' outfit model and Benjamin Dupuis' head.
  • His gravestone can be found once again at Odd Fellow's Rest in Red Dead Redemption 2, this time reading as simply "Pete Turner", with the inscription "Leaves behind a loving fiancé, Alma Horlick".
