Mark Blanco, 30, allegedly fell from an apartment balcony nearly four years ago. The apartment belonged to Doherty"s friend Paul Roundhill. And now, the victim"s mother, Sheila Blanco, has claimed that new evidence shows Mark was unconscious at the time he fell and foul play must have been involved.
“Mark had injuries mainly to the head, he cannot possibly have gone over conscious," the Daily Star quoted her as saying. CCTV footage showed Libertines star Doherty running away from the scene.
Doherty"s minder at that time, Johnny Headlock, once made a confession to Mark"s murder but soon retracted it and was later released after a psychiatric test. The grieving mother has now compiled her own evidence, which has been submitted to the Crown Prosecution Service.
