The FBI lab reported that it could not determine the lyrics to "Louie Louie."

A rumor that the lyrics were intentionally slurred by the Kingsmen—to cover up
the alleged fact that they were laced with profanity, graphically depicting sex
between the sailor and his lady, were circulated among teens and the  song was
banned on many radio stations and in the country, including Indiana, where is
was personally prohibited by then Governor Matthew Welsh.

These actions were all taken despite the small matter that practically no one
could distinguish the actual lyrics. Denials of chicanery by Kingsmen and Ely
did not stop the controversy. The FBI started a 31-month investigation into the
matter and concluded they were "unable to interpret any of the wording in the
record”.

Lester Joseph Gillis (December 6, 1908– November 27, 1934)

Gillis, known by the alias George Nelson, better known as Baby Face
Nelson, was a notorious bank robber in the 1930s. Gillis was given the
nickname Baby Face due to his youthful appearance and small stature,
although few dared call him "Baby Face" to his face. Criminal associates
instead called him "Jimmy". Nelson entered into a partnership with John
Dillinger
, helping him escape from prison during the famed Crown Point,
Indiana
Jail escape, and was later labeled along with the remaining gang
members as public enemy number one.

Nelson was responsible for killing more FBI agents in the line of duty
(three: W. Carter Baum, Herman Hollis, and Samuel P. Cowley) than
any other person. Nelson was fatally shot by FBI agents during a
shootout called The Battle of Barrington.
