Subject: George Harrisons Death Certificate Corrected
Harrison's Death Certificate Corrected
Wednesday, Feb. 13, 2002
LOS ANGELES (AP) - Friends of former Beatles guitarist George Harrison have
corrected a death certificate that listed a bogus address as the place
where he died.
The original document filed with Los Angeles County authorities listed a
nonexistent Beverly Hills address as the place where the 58-year-old
Harrison died Nov. 29 of lung cancer.
The musician who wrote "Here Comes the Sun" and "Got My Mind Set on You"
actually died at a home several miles away in the Hollywood Hills, Los
Angeles District Attorney Steve Cooley said Tuesday.
Families of dead celebrities sometimes try to distract grim
curiosity-seekers by withholding the actual site of the death. Falsifying
such information, however, can be prosecuted as a felony.
Now that the document has been corrected, Cooley said he considers the
matter closed and will not seek criminal charges.
The amended data was filed Monday by Jeffrey W. Marquart, acting on behalf
of a security firm working with the Harrison family, Cooley said.
The district attorney's office investigated the matter after local attorney
Gloria Allred filed a formal complaint in December, saying the use of a
fake address undermines the integrity of public records.
