"Bad" Bob Applelton. Circa: Perris 1993. Can't Post

One of the first people I met in America in Feb 1983. Anyone REALLY know what happened to him in the SB mountains that year? I heard the rumors, still have one or two of his personal things he left me before he dissapeared, vowing to return. He left a lasting impression on me, good or bad........you choose,just curious.

Mick.

I got along fine with Bob. We were friends but not tight buddies. As far as what happened to him, anybody's guess.

Hi Mick,
You would mention "Bad Bob" Appleton!! There was all kinds of rumors about his demise but only he knows and he ain't talkin'. I have his dad's add. and phone in Mass. if you want to get in touch with him. Let me know.

Hey Bill,
Like you, all I heard was something like, "a bad apple was taken out in the mountains..."
DZ rumor was he was gangland kill meat.
Dunno.
