New Book Claims Jim Morrison OD'd in a Toilet

(Gigwise) A new book alleges that Jim Morrison died of a heroin overdose in a Paris nightclub, seemingly dispelling the theory that he was killed by heart failure.

The Doors frontman was found dead in the bathtub in his Paris apartment in March 1971 a death that's always been shrouded in mystery. Coroners did not carry out an autopsy as they believed there were no suspicious circumstances.

...bar owner Sam Bernett claims in his book 'Life, Death, Legend' that Morrison died from a heroin overdose in a toilet cubicle in his Rock and Roll Circus nightclub. Bernett alleges that two drug dealers tried to revive the singer but failed, so they hauled his body back to the apartment where Morrison's girlfriend Pamela Courson apparently discovered the body.
