A (somewhat) infamous attorney-at-law F. Lee Bailey passed away yesterday at the age of 87.  Known as the defense lawyer for Dr. Sam Sheppard (on which the shows and motion picture The Fugitive were based), Albert DeSalvo (the “Boston Strangler”), Kidnapped-terrorist-turned-bank-robber Patty Hearst, and alleged murderer O. J. Simpson. What is his connection to Paul?  The craziest kind-perpetuating the “Paul Is Dead” urban legend!

From Wikipedia:

Bailey was featured in an RKO television special in which he conducted a mock trial, examining various expert witnesses on the subject of the “Paul is dead” rumor referring to Beatle Paul McCartney . One of the experts was Fred LaBour, whose article in The Michigan Daily had been instrumental in the spread of the urban legend. LaBour told Bailey during a pre-show meeting he had made up the whole thing. Bailey responded, “Well, we have an hour of television to do. You’re going to have to go along with this.”   mccartney-shrug_01_gif The program aired locally in New York City on November 30, 1969, and was never re-aired. a-hard-days-night-paul-11

Lots of things that are completely made up are still true.

Oh shoot it’s ‘that’ Bailey? Haha, I was reading through the “Paul is Dead” Wikipedia page yesterday when I recalled about it.
