The Los Angeles Police Department has put out a post on Twitter that they have no information on the passing of singer Tom Petty (see photo below). The initial information that came out earlier today was "inadvertently provided to media sources" according to the LAPD. TMZ and CBS news had originally reported that the singer had passed following a heart attack he suffered in his Malibu home but have now retracted their reports and are stating the 66-year old musician is still "clinging to life."
No official statement has been made public yet from Petty's publicist and/or camp as well as no report yet from the Coroner. A Chaplin was supposedly requested to Petty's hospital room and the family has a DNR in place for him but at this time he is "clinging to life."
