Davy Jones, lead singer of the Monkees, has died in Indiantown of an apparent heart attack, his publicist confirms. Martin County Sheriff's officials say someone called paramedics at 8 a.m. to an address in the 9900 block of Southwest Fox Brown Road after Jones complained that he was "not feeling well and having trouble breathing."
Those rescue crews took Jones to Martin Memorial South Hospital where he was pronounced dead, according to a statement released by sheriff's office this afternoon.
"At this time there do not appear to be any suspicious circumstances surrounding the death," the statement said. The district's medical examiner has confirmed the death.
"We are currently evaluating whether or not the Medical Examiner's Office will take jurisdiction," according to a statement read by spokeswoman Rebecca Shortridge. "It is quite a shock," said Helen Kensick, Jones' publicist of 50 years. Kensick said Jones keeps horses in Indiantown.
