July 3, 1971

July3On this day in 1971, Jim Morrison was found dead in his Paris apartment bathtub by his longtime girlfriend, Pamela Courson. Morrison was 27 years old.

No autopsy was performed due to the medical examiner’s ruling that there was no evidence that foul play had taken place. To this day, no one knows what killed Jim Morrison; a heroin overdose is most likely the cause, due to his long addiction with the drug, but controversy continues to surround the story of Morrison’s death. Books and films have ventured into such ludicrous conspiracy theories from Courson killing Morrison, to Morrison faking his own death.

Morrison is buried in Pere Lachaise Cemetery in Paris, France.
