Probably most famous for his hit " I fought the law", just a few months after it became a hit, (wiki quote):-

Fuller was found dead in an automobile parked outside his Hollywood apartment. The Los Angeles deputy medical examiner, Jerry Nelson, performed the autopsy. According to Dean Kuipers: "The report states that Bobby's face, chest, and side were covered in "petechial hemorrhages" probably caused by gasoline vapors and the summer heat. He found no bruises, no broken bones, no cuts. No evidence of beating." Kuipers further explains that boxes for "accident" and "suicide" were ticked, but next to the boxes were question marks. Despite the official cause of death, some commentators believe Fuller was murdered.
Erik Greene, a relative of Sam Cooke, has cited similarities in the deaths of Cooke and Fuller. Fuller bandmate, Jim Reese, suspected that Charles Manson may have had something to do with Fuller's death but never provided credible evidence. A sensationalist crime website has speculated that the LAPD may have been involved because of Bobby's connection to a Mafia-related woman.

allegations that he was high on LSD seem to have been made somewhere along the way....

Whats happening here? I can't add URL links on my signature (to legal streeming music sites such as smithsonian folkways radio / adelaide community "3D radio - 5DDD") -  have I been disabled???, I did post a link to a bob dylan video on my 'profile feed' a few weeks ago that might have been dubious, it got deleted, by someone anyway, very sorry guys!!! But why did the legitimate links on my signature also get wiped? - and I say, I seem to be disabled now :td: .

I actually remember my babysitter being all upset over Bobby Fuller's death. It's such a cold case that this point I doubt anyone will ever have a definitive answer.

I was Bobby Fuller's age, and the Bobby Fuller Four used to practice in his garage in a neighborhood called Eastwood in El Paso, Tx., next to  my neighborhood Cielo Vista. We would go by and listen to the  band play. We were all shocked when we heard he was dead; the majority of people thought he had committed suicide. And we heard about the gas can, etc. He had a wonderful future in front of him with a great band. What a tragedy.  Harold "Kenn" Hill, WA St.
