Bobby Fuller, the rock ‘n roll sensation who put “I Fought The Law” on the top of the pop music charts, was found dead in his mother’s car on July 15, 1966. He’s the subject of the “This Week in Texas History” column for July 9 through July 15.
The Goose Creek, now Baytown, native was only 22 years with a bright future in the music industry. Yet the Los Angeles police and coroner ruled his death under highly suspicious circumstances a suicide. Forty-eight years later, it still looks like someone got away with murder.
