Fresh Rolling Stones death probe

Forty years after the body of Rolling Stones guitarist Brian Jones was found floating in his swimming pool, police have said they are reviewing new evidence about his death.

Though Jones' 1969 drowning was ruled an accident linked to a drug and alcohol binge, friends and fans have long insisted the rock star was murdered, and reports have swirled of a death bed confession by a building contractor.

Sussex police said they will examine new documents received from a journalist relating to Jones' death. They have not yet decided whether to officially reopen the case.
