Los Angeles, California December 10 or 11, 1964.

 

Although there is an official story behind Sam Cooke’s murder, the story doesn’t add up as it was reported.  Too many holes in the logic.

The newspapers reported a different Hotel than the one Sam had actually died at.

Thousands of dollars and credit cards were missing to make it look as if it were a robbery and not just a conspiracy to stomp on the Blues.

He was shot, or at least shot at, three times.  Some reports say two missed.  Some say all three shots hit their mark.  And then he was clubbed over the head?

A woman reports that she was kidnapped?  Yet hangs around the scene?

Sam’s clothes were stolen.  Sam’s money was stolen except for about $100.  What’s with that?

One of the women involved sued his estate for almost quarter of a million dollars.

Was it just about the money, or was this another attempt to cover up the real purpose of his murder?  Too many twists on the logic for this to be only what it seems.

But wait, why is Del-Fi Records involved in another murder mystery?  They had contracts with Sam Cooke as well as Bobby Fuller & Richie Valens.
