"Sam Cooke, the great gospel and soul crooner, died a true blues death when he was shot and killed Dec. 11, 1964, in Los Angeles. Cooke was found in the manager's room at the Hacienda Motel in a state of undress. Bertha Franklin, the motel, shot Cooke in the heart as he attacked her to find out the whereabouts of a woman who had fled his $3-a-night room."
