Conspiracy theories about the most “bizarre” deaths in the history of rock

Speculations and scripts that have seen the light of publicity for the murder of John Lennon, the drowning of Brian Jones and the mysterious death of Jimi Hendrix

The shocking discovery of Marianne Faithfull, that a former lover of hers and drug dealer by the name of Jean De Breteuil was the one who gave the fatal dose to Jim Morrison that killed him, has thrown “light” in the mysterious death of the frontman of the Doors, forty-three years later. The Telegraph writes that “It’s an acceptable explanation”, for the circumstances of the death of Jim Morrison, who was found dead at the age of 27 in the bathtub of his apartment in Paris on the 3rs of July in 1971.

Back then, an autopsy was never conducted, since the doctor who examined his body said he found no evidence of a crime. The absence of an autopsy gave an excuse to many scenarios about the cause of his death. One of the most “convincing” is that of a French journalist and former close friend of the rock star, Sam Bernett, who claims that Jim Morrison left his last breath from heroin overdose in the toilet of the nightclub Rock ‘n’ Roll Circus in Paris and was moved while dead from two dealer’s to his apartment, where he was officially found dead. The journalist in an interview in 2007 to the Daily Mail he had said that he had seen Morrison entering the night club in Paris at 1.00 and that he bought the fatal dose of two drug dealers who worked for Breteuil ( the drug dealer that Marianne Faithfull remembered).
He also claimed that he saw the dead rocker, having blood running from his mouth, and that he was the one who called the doctor which later announced him dead and whose name he refused to mention. At that time, the two dealers who worked for Jean De
Breteuil appeared and claimed that Morrison had just fainted. According to Bernett then the dealers took Morrison to take him home, and that was the last time he ever saw his friend …

The evening that he drowned were at his house, his girlfriend Anna Wohlin, the 26 year old nurse Janet Lawson, who knew Jones from her lover and manager Tom Keylock and the 43 year old builder Frank Thorogood.

Shortly before her death of cancer, Lawson, the woman who found him dead in the swimming pool, granted in 2008 an interview to Daily Mail. Although at the beggining she had stated that the time of his death she had already returned at her house, she revealed to the journalist that not only she was at Jones house but she knew of his killer.
Lawson claimed that the 43 year old Frank Thorogood choked Brian Jones. “Frank did not do the work of building well and Brian had fired him that day … There was something in the air. Frank behaved weird … “she said. According to her version, at some point Jones while in the pool had asked her to bring him the inhaler for his asthma. “I was looking around the house and Frank followed me after a while. His hands were shaking. I went to the pool to see what happened. Then I saw Brian on the bottom of the pool … I think Frank did it. He jumped into the pool and by the time i went outside, Brian was on the bottom of the pool. There was not a ripple on the water, “stated Lawson.
