Castleton, Vermont - (RIP Mess): Conspiracy winguts are trawling cyberspace for the merest hint of 'silken ropes' and/or 'anal nightrate' following the suspicious death at a Vermont gallery today of Mia Farrow's sculptor brother Patrick.
Farrow, 66, was found slumped beside his signature artwork The Leash, descibed in the gallery catalogue as a bronze statue of 'a bitch on heat pulling against an invisible leash attached to a hotel tool closet'.
The inscription on the bronze canine's left leg reads 'Justine' and 'Brittney' (no relation).
The sculptor's famous sister Mia said today there was absolutely no connection with her dead brother's sculpture dedication and the Marquis de Sade's seminal S&M sadist's novel Justine ou Les Malheurs de la vertu.
Nor with wacky peroxide chanteuse Britney Spears.
