Did Jim Morrison O.D.?
The mystery surrounding the 1971 death of the lead singer of the Doors rock band intensified today with a highly detailed account published in a U.K. newspaper alleging that Jim Morrison perished from a heroin overdose in a nightclub. The account in the The Mail on Sunday, given by a French-born journalist with a forthcoming book, alleges that Morrison's body was dumped in his Paris apartment's bathtub by the two nervous drug-dealers who supplied the heroin that killed him. (Morrison's manager, Bill Siddons, who handled Morrison's burial, was in Charlottesville in late March.)
