Murder or accident? British police say they will re-examine the death of founding member of the Rolling Stones Brian Jones, who was found dead in his swimming pool in 1969, after receiving new information from an investigative journalist.

REUTERS - British police are to re-examine the death of former Rolling Stones guitarist Brian Jones after receiving new information.

Jones, a founding member of the rock band, was 27 when he was found dead at the bottom of a swimming pool at his home in southern England 40 years ago.

An inquest recorded a verdict of death by misadventure.

A spokesman for Sussex police said on Monday the force had received new information about the musician's death from an investigative journalist.

"These papers will be examined by Sussex Police but it is too early to comment at this time on what the outcome will be," he said.

Known for his flamboyant attire and recreational drug excesses, Jones left the band shortly before his death.
