CBS News now says that reports of the death on Monday of singer-songwriter Tom Petty cannot be confirmed. CBS updated its report to say the Los Angeles Police Department now is not willing to confirm the death of the 66-year-old Petty it had earlier reported (https://www.cbsnews.com/news/lapd-clarifies-cannot-confirm-tom-petty-death/). TMZ was first to report (http://www.tmz.com/2017/10/02/tom-petty-found-unconscious-full-cardiac-arrest/) the news that Petty, a 2002 inductee into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a member of the band Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, had been rushed to a hospital late Sunday after reportedly being found unconscious and in cardiac arrest. Petty had wrapped up a months-long North America tour on Sept. 25.
