There's a movie that tells the story.

Robbie Benson starred in it.

The singer said she never knew why he jumped, so the movie is just one interpretation.

I forgot to put in the OP to not consider the movie since it takes many liberties with the song. And I also made the mistake in the spelling of the song. It should be "Ode To Billie Joe." The movie uses Billy instead. Bad way for me to start this thread.
