Bailey’s oldest son, Bendriz Lee Bailey, has revealed that his father died Thursday morning in Georgia, where he was in hospice, according to TMZ

He claims that his father’s death was not related to COVID-19, and the family is saying that it was due to old age.

Bendrix also claims that his father did not want a funeral and will probably be cremated, but his family is considering a celebration of life. 

F. Lee Bailey was one of the most famous lawyers in American history. He represented some of the most notorious defendants which included Boston Strangler Albert DeSalvo, Patty Hearst, Sam Sheppard and O.J. Simpson. 

Bailey was able to make a name for himself early in his career, but not as a lawyer. He was the host of a television show, "Good Company," in 1967, in which he interviewed celebs in their homes. In 1983, he had another show ... "Lie Detector," where he would question guests and submit their answers to a polygrapher.

Bailey, however, encountered a few problems after the O.J. Simpson trial. He was disbarred in 2001 for transferring assets from a client into his own, personal bank account. Later in 2009, Bailey took and passed the bar exam in Maine but was forbidden to practice because the bar felt he did not possess "the honesty and integrity" to practice law.

Bailey was married 4 différent times and has had 3 children.
