1966: Rock musician and singer-songwriter Bobby Fuller (second from left), best known for his singles "I Fought the Law" and "Love's Made a Fool of You," recorded with his mid-1960s group the Bobby Fuller Four, is found dead at age 23 in an automobile parked outside his Hollywood apartment. His death was first ruled a suicide, but three months later, the medical examiner changed the cause of death to "accidental asphyxiation."
