1969 Death Of Stones Guitarist Under Review

Suggestions of foul play in the drowning death of Brian Jones 40 years ago have swirled around for years.  British authorities now say that new evidence has come to light that warrants further review of the circumstances of the death, which went into the official record as death by misadventure.  A police spokesman said that the new information was under review, but the BBC report indicates that a new investigation into the case has not been opened as of yet.  Jones died at 27 in the pool on his Cotchford Farm home in Sussex, a former residence of AA Milne, the writer of Winnie-The-Pooh, about a month after learning that the band had decided to replace him.
