Events of Red Dead Redemption 2

To get his wanted letter, the player must fulfill the following requirements:

When the player enters Laidlaw's cabin, they are tackled to the ground by an accomplice. After fighting him off, the player then pursues Laidlaw, who runs into a field and sets it ablaze in order to make himself harder to catch. His attempts fail, however, and the player ultimately manages to apprehend him. Laidlaw is then brought to Sheriff Thomas in Rhodes, where he is imprisoned. Sheriff Thomas pays the player for Laidlaw's capture, while also being informed that arson can be added to the list of his crimes.

  • Emmet Granger is mentioned to be a suspect in the Laidlaw family disappearance.
  • When bringing home his bounty, he can can be heard attempting to bribe the player with "exotic photos" of "wee fairies", strongly implying he is in possession of early child pornography, which he might have created himself using the slave cabin and its underage captives.
