    Maybe that's an alias though. (See Billy the Kid - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia )

    Which meaning do you want?

    1. Mr. Willy the Kid is now in Sunshine City.
    2. Mr. Willy the Kid who many believe was the most dangerous thief in the West is now in Sunshine City.

    If meaning 1., then use commas to set off the who-clause; If meaning 2., then omit the commas.
