He supervised the opening stages of the FBI's investigation into the Watergate scandal that eventually brought down Richard Nixon's presidency, but in 1972, he chose to return to his post as special agent in charge of the FBI's San Francisco office, a job he'd held previously for three years beginning in 1967.
It was there that he made a name for himself, leading the search for the kidnapped newspaper heiress-turned-bank robber.
A year after the Hearst arrest, Mr. Bates again found himself in the media's spotlight, leading the investigation into the 1976 Chowchilla kidnapping of 26 children from a school bus in the San Joaquin Valley. The search for the suspects led to the arrests and convictions of three men.
