Marianne Faithfull: ‘I Know Who Killed Jim Morrison’

In a revealing interview with Mojo magazine, Marianne Faithfull made a revelation: she knows who killed the Doors frontman Jim Morrison.

Unsurprisingly, she places the blame on her then-boyfriend and heroin dealer Jean de Breiteuil.

“[H]e went to see Jim Morrison and killed him,” Faithfull said. “I mean, I’m sure it was an accident. Poor bastard. The smack was too strong? Yeah. And he died. And I didn’t know anything about this. Anyway, everybody connected to the death of this poor guy is dead now. Except me.”

Faithfull famously fell into drug use and a serious heroin addiction for most of the ’70s. In her memoir, Faithfull, she describes it as a lost period and seems to have little memory of the time during which she ended up homeless and addicted.
