Recently the American cable TV network A&E released information in connection with the airing of a biography about Brian Epstein perpetuating the myth that he had committed suicide. This is not true. The official medical inquest at the time of his death in 1967 declared it was an accidental death. Many dangerous drugs were found in his room, yet the medical evidence showed that he had simply taken some of the less dangerous drugs in an accidentally fatal combination.

The Proof:

Besides the medical evidence and official inquest verdict, official Epstein biographer Ray Coleman documents several reasons we can know Brian was not planning suicide at the time of his death. Brian's father had died six months earlier, and Brian was very dedicated to his mother, Queenie, who was very devestated by Brian's father's death. He was also engaged in purchasing a London flat for her at that time. He would have never intentionally left her at such a time. Further, Brian was very meticulous, in both his business and private lives, yet he died without first arranging a will. In addition, he wrote a letter to Derek Taylor days before his death, outlining exciting plans for the future, including being excited about the news that Cilla Black, another of his artistes, had just been offered her own TV show on the BBC.
