The death certificate initially stated he had died at 1971 Coldwater Canyon Road in Beverly Hills, although it later came to light that no such location exists. The Los Angeles District Attorney’s office launched an investigation, and the true location was revealed to be 9536 Heather Road, a Los Angeles house once rented and now owned by McCartney. A replacement death certificate was later issued.
Harrison’s ashes were taken to the family’s home in Hawaii, before being scattered in the River Ganges in a private ceremony. His family issued a statement, saying:
He left this world as he lived in it, conscious of God, fearless of death, and at peace, surrounded by family and friends. He often said, ‘Everything else can wait but the search for God cannot wait, and love one another’.
