New questions about Jim Morrison's death

"Jim Morrison, rock singer, was buried in Pere Lachaise cemetery, in a small ceremony without fanfare, on July 7, 1971. No autopsy was ever performed"

this was from an article this morning on Yahoo homepage re: Jim Morrison's death, 36 yrs ago. i pulled this quote from it only because while my husband & i were on a tour in Paris in the '80's, i went on a walking tour and the guide took us to the same cemetery gate where Morrison is buried!! we could not go in. it was, in my mind's recollection, a very dismal-looking cemetery, old and dark. i've always remembered that i was at the gate of Jim Morrison's final resting place!!
