Robert Blake kicked off his impressive acting career as a child, starring in “Our Gang.” As an adult, he starred in movies like “In Cold Blood” and “Town Without Pity.” Decades later, he was arrested for murder.
In 2001, Blake’s second wife Bonnie Lee Bakley was murdered. After the couple dined in an Italian restaurant in Los Angeles, Bakley got into their car. Blake claimed he ran back to the restaurant to pick up a gun he left behind. When he returned to the car, according to Blake, he found his wife shot to death.
