It’s just been released that Jani Lane didn’t have any ID on his person when he was found dead. However, he did have a hand written note in his pocket saying “I am Jani Lane” but it was not written in his hand writing…The plot thickens..chuck
According to TMZ.com, a note saying “I am Jani Lane” was found in the former WARRANT singer’s pocket on the day he died. However, Jani, who had no official ID on him when his body was discovered at a Los Angeles motel on August 11, isn’t believed to have written the note himself.
Law enforcement sources tell TMZ.com that the note contained a phone number for a person close to Jani, and police contacted that person after Jani‘s body was discovered.
Investigators have confirmed to TMZ.com that the note was written by one of Jani‘s friends who had placed a similar note on Jani in the past.
According to the site, members of Jani‘s family are furious over the fact that the person who wrote the note didn’t help Lane seek treatment for the singer’s substance-abuse problem instead of simply tucking a piece of paper into Jani‘s pants.
It’s unclear if the same person who wrote the note also checked Jani into the Comfort Inn since it appears the room where Jani was discovered was not purchased by Jani himself.
An autopsy performed on Lane proved inconclusive pending the results of toxicology tests, according to the Los Angeles County coroner’s office.
Assistant Chief Coroner Ed Winter says it may take several weeks to finalize the cause of death.
