Former JACKSON FIVE star JOHNNY JACKSON was stabbed to death at his home in Gary, Indiana, on Wednesday night (01MAR06), according to police. The 54-year-old drummer, who is thought to be cousin to superstars Michael and Janet Jackson, was found when a neighbour alerted police to a disturbance between Jackson and an unknown female. Gary Police's JACK ARNOLD says the star received a single wound to the chest - but no weapon has been found. Police have appealed for the female who shared Jackson's home to come forward. Jackson replaced original Jackson Five drummer MILFORD HITE in 1967, he later played with WHITE DOVE.
