The Death of Don Bolles

This series of articles about the murder of investigative reporter Don Bolles originally ran in the Arizona Republic

On June 2, 1976, a bomb exploded beneath Arizona Republic reporter Don Bolles’ car. Eleven days later, he died. Today, there are still those who believe Bolles’ slaying is something of a mystery.

Still others believe he was done in by a combination of the two. The truth is buried in the minds, or in the graves, of those who were involved.
