Mystery death: Brian Jones in 1965 with his then girlfriend, the model Anita Pallenberg

Police are reviewing the death of Rolling Stone Brian Jones – 40 years after his body was found at the bottom of a swimming pool.

The dramatic move by Sussex Police follows new evidence unearthed by The Mail on Sunday about the mysterious death of the rock legend which suggests he was murdered by his minder.

Officially, Jones drowned, aged 27, in his pool at Cotchford Farm, Hartfield, East Sussex, on July 2, 1969, while under the influence of drink and drugs.

An inquest recorded a verdict of death by misadventure, even though the post-mortem report said there were no illegal drugs in the star’s body, just the equivalent of three-and-a-half pints of beer.

But now, a review officer based at Sussex Police CID headquarters has been assigned to trawl through 600 documents handed over by investigative journalist Scott Jones, who undertook a four-year probe into the guitarist’s death.

The new evidence was compiled by Mr Jones – no relation to the dead Stone – and disclosed by this newspaper last November.

The move follows a three-and-a-half-hour meeting Mr Jones had with senior Sussex police officers last month when they discussed testimony from witnesses at the house on the night Jones died.

Detectives are studying previously unseen files released by the Public Records Office and may launch a new investigation if they believe there is enough new evidence.

This marks a U-turn by Sussex Police, who until now have rejected requests to reopen the case.

Scott Jones said last night: ‘There is no time limit on the review. But after 40 years of mystery, anyone who values Brian’s reputation will be happy to wait for the outcome.’

Last November, we revealed fresh evidence from nurse Janet Lawson, who found Jones’s body. She said she saw his minder, Frank Thorogood, jump into the pool and ‘do something to Brian’. She was convinced he had killed Jones.

Thorogood died in 1994. Her claims are supported by PC Albert Evans, the first officer on the scene, who spoke to all the witnesses in the hours after Jones’s death and concluded he had died as a result of a fight with Thorogood.

New evidence also emerged about the original investigation by Detective Chief Inspector Bob Marshall, which shows that three unidentified witnesses were allowed to leave the scene without being interviewed.

Finally, police files have revealed how taxi driver Joan Fitzsimons, a former girlfriend of Thorogood, was attacked and left for dead three weeks after Brian Jones died. According to the official records, Ms Fitzsimons was planning to speak to the media about Jones’s death.

Thorogood was said to have been desperately searching for Ms Fitzsimons in the weeks before the attack because, the files reveal, she knew too much about the band. She died in 2002."

I read this some time ago - it was first published in the early 90s.

A couple of other accounts have been circulating for some time. The allegations are loosely as per wiki's account:

Quote:At around midnight on the night of 2-3 July 1969, Jones was discovered motionless at the bottom of his swimming pool at Cotchford Farm. His Swedish girlfriend, Anna Wohlin, is convinced he was alive when they took him out, insisting he still had a pulse. However, by the time the doctors arrived, it was too late, and he was pronounced dead. The coroner's report stated "Death by misadventure", and noted his liver and heart were heavily enlarged by drug and alcohol abuse[22]

Wohlin claimed in 1999 that Jones had been murdered by a builder who had been renovating the house the couple shared.[citation needed] The builder, Frank Thorogood, allegedly confessed to the murder on his deathbed to the Rolling Stones' driver, Tom Keylock; Keylock later denied this.[22] In the book The Murder Of Brian Jones, Wohlin alleges that Thorogood behaved suspiciously and showed little sympathy when Jones was discovered in the pool (he was the last to see Brian alive), but she admits she was not present at Jones's death.[citation needed] Witnesses who claim to have seen the "murder" have been interviewed by journalists; however, these witnesses have almost always used pseudonyms, and none has been willing to go on record or report to the police.[citation needed] A critical witness, still alive, is a man called 'Marty' in the Hotchner book 'Blown Away'. Another builder present, called Mo(rris) passed away a couple of years ago. A third builder present called Jeff is also still around.

Some of these "builders" and "chauffeurs" around Jones and the Stones allegedly had links to the London criminal underworld.

The seminal movie, Performance, was largely shot in 1968, and the whole Stones entourage were obsessed with gangster hardcore drug/sex/death glamour. The movie was co-directed by Nicholas Roeg and Donald Cammell.

Cammell was a collaborator/acolyte of Kenneth Anger, who made films such as Lucifer Rising.

Lucifer Rising starred one Bobby Beausoleil.

Bobby Beausoleil was a Manson Family member and assassin. Beausoleil sliced up alleged drug dealer Gary Hinman's face with a sword, and then cut off his ear. Later, Beausoleil murdered Hinman, and daubed "political piggy" on the wall in Hinman's blood.

Anita Pallenberg had been Brian Jones' girlfriend. By the time of Performance, she was Keith Richards' girlfriend. The film featured explicit (for the time) sex scenes involving Pallenberg and Jagger. Allegedly Pallenberg also had a relationship with James Fox, who played the gangster.

Allegedly, the filming of the second half of the movie, in the Notting Hill Gate house, was chaotic, with major hallucinogenic ingestion and mass paranoia as Cammell screwed with everyone's minds.

In Performance, the Jagger character has lost his creative mojo and tries to get inside the head of the gangster killer Fox through drugs, sex, and hypnotic trance.

Literally psychedelic possession.

The relevance to Brian Jones is that outside the fictional world, the Stones appear to have been engaged in analogous quests.

This is also the time of Altamont.

Now I know they happen, but for someone who has become somewhat allergic to 'coincidence theory', the name of that publisher just jumps off the page at me.

I've had a quick chunter around their web site and does seem straight enough - maybe there was a sort of frisson to the name when they were starting up, or something like that - but it is a bit spooky eh?

Peter - I'm sure the choice of name, Helter Skelter Publishing, is entirely deliberate.

"Helter Skelter" was of course the White Album song that "inspired" Manson to his ludicrous "race war" scenario, involving whites, blacks, Hells Angels, and Manson ruling the desert like some proto-Mad Max character.

The derivation could be ONI spook L Ron Hubbard's risible science fiction, or perhaps a programme put together by Manson's alleged ONI handler (discussed elsewhere on this site).

In the context of the Rolling Stones, the movie Performance, which I've touched upon above, is crucial. It is a film about hallucinogens, sex, death, possession, and the magickal attempt to get inside another's mind and steal their mojo.

In other words, dark, extreme, mind control.

...

Same here Jan. I read all the books on the subject that I'm aware of. And Christoper Robin was an excellent one. There's simply no doubt in my mind that Frank Thoroughgood done the deed. That part is crystal clear.

What's less clear is how he got away with such a blatant crime, and that brings to mind the role of the powerful and hugely wealthy Stones organization, who Thoroughgood directly reported to. Specifically Tom Keylock, who was in perfect position tocover up a murder. Hell, there were all the trademarks of a classic cover: bonfire of the victim's belongings immediately after the crime (like with Pat Tillman), a truncated investigation, threatened/assaulted witnesses. Someone with clout shut the investigation down.

This is not a big picture crime in my opinion, in the sense that the murders of John Lennon and Bob Marley were deep political murders due to the popularity, power, and political activism of the artists. But it is a bigger crime than just Frank Thoroughgood deciding to go all postal on Jones' ass on the spur of the moment. Thoroughgood knew he could get away with it, knew he could intimidate witnesses the second he got out of the pool, knew that the power of the Stones machine was behind him. He knew that the Stones hated and feared Jones because he was the spirit and soul and SOLE founder of the band, and he was going on the start another band --reportedly with John Lennon, but I have no idea if that's true. (Recent descriptions of him as A founding member are BS; he was THE founding member.)

Of course the cover up will continue, but it's good that it's getting a bit of publicity nonetheless.

Maybe be slightly off topic - on the on the hand it might not be, but drug connected drowning in swimming pools in luxury essex homes belonging to top personalities seems to be an odd sort of fad:

Quote:Death of Stuart Lubbock
Following a party in the early hours of 31 March 2001, 31-year-old meat inspector Stuart Lubbock died after three witnesses, including Barrymore himself, claimed to have found him motionless in Barrymore's swimming pool. All charges were dropped when it later came to court, though witnesses could not agree on whether he was found floating on top of the pool or at the bottom of it.[16] The cause of death was found to be drowning. Lubbock, described as a "bubbly partygoer", had traces of drugs and alcohol in his system. Pathologists discovered severe anal injuries which some said were consistent with a sexual assault.[17]
Many tabloid newspapers accused Barrymore of holding drug-fuelled gay orgies in his home and asserted that he must have had some responsibility for the death. It was claimed that Barrymore had been seen at the party forcing cocaine onto Lubbock's gums,[18] an allegation Barrymore denied.

The shadow is a moral problem that challenges the whole ego-personality, for no one can become conscious of the shadow without considerable moral effort. To become conscious of it involves recognizing the dark aspects of the personality as present and real. This act is the essential condition for any kind of self-knowledge.

That long walk in to the concert as seen at the beginning of the video, is the reason that we left at dusk before the Stones played.There was only one little road in,and 200,000 people had to leave by it.So glad we left early.Incidently,that whole area now is covered with hundreds of giant windmills.It's pretty surreal when you drive through there.

Amazing. It seems that anyone can be murdered and the killers get off scott free. I had never seen this thread before and remember some vage story about Jone's making some "deal with the devil" for fame and fortune. Then drowning. Everything about the Stones seems spooky. Dripping in evil. (And I am a fan of their music)

While Brian Jones' caretaker Frank Thorogood allegedly confessed to murdering Jones on his deathbed in 1993 this new film claims to have proven it. I include it on the Political Assassinations board because Alex Constantine claims it was a covert murder:
