Brian Jones murder investigation revived for new Netflix film

New evidence that suggests tragic Rolling Stones founder Brian Jones may have been murdered is to feature in a new documentary.
The guitarist was found dead in the swimming pool of his home at Cotchford Farm in Sussex, England on 3 July, 1969, and now 50 years later, those closest to Brian are digging up the past in a new Netflix movie.
Investigative journalist Terry Rawlings, whose book Who Killed Christopher Robin? is the basis for the documentary, interviewed several people for the film, including Jones’ manager Tom Keylock.
In his unseen 2009 chat, he claims Brian and his house guests were all really high on the night before the tragedy: “What people don’t know is that very strong hash cakes were made. That’s why they were all stoned and they didn’t know what day it was.
“(My girlfriend) Janet (Lawson) told me she didn’t remember anything, as she was out of her head. They all were. I was the only one who wasn’t stoned.”
Keylock also told Rawlings that his brother Frank, a senior Scotland Yard CID officer, revealed cops bungled the murder investigation.
“I think the police wanted to make a manslaughter charge, but they were told to forget it,” he said. “The only one who could possibly have been charged was Frank Thorogood, because he was the only one in the pool. But the police said, ‘Just forget it’. The orders came from the very top not to pursue it anymore, and it never was pursued after that.”
Reports suggested builder Thorogood killed Jones in a dispute over money.
Jones’ death investigation was reopened by Sussex Police in 2009 as new evidence came to light, but police found nothing new, stating: “There is no new evidence to suggest that the coroner’s original verdict of ‘death by misadventure’ is incorrect.”
Earlier this month (Jul19), Jones’ daughter, Barbara Marion, told Sky News, “I don’t think his death was investigated as it should have been.”
