Pete Doherty is set to be quizzed by police over whether he provided drugs to documentary maker Robin Whitehead, who was found dead in London on Monday (January 25).

Whitehead had been making a documentary about Doherty's old band The Libertines. She was found in the Hackney flat thought to be owned by Doherty's friend and musical collaborator Peter 'Wolfman' Wolfe.

Now police are set to question the singer/guitarist over whether he provided drugs to Whitehead, reports The Sun. Drug paraphernalia was reportedly found in the flat, while Doherty was thought to have visited her the day before her death.

Wolfe denied that Doherty had visited the flat, instead saying that he and Whitehead had visited the Babyshambles man in his Wiltshire home. But the newspaper reports that a warden claimed he saw Doherty at the flat.

Despite the police seeking to question the frontman, the death is being treated as non-suspicious.
