The feud between the Hatfields and the McCoys is one of the most famous in American history. Many legends surround it. You can’t really call them urban legends, as they emanate from one of the most rural parts of the country.

The feud resulted in at least a dozen deaths. Most people are responsible for their actions. The McCoys, however, may be a exception. It appears now that they couldn’t help their hair-trigger rage and violent outbursts. Many McCoy descendants suffer from Von Hippel-Lindau disease.

The Associated Press has the full story.
