Singer Shan Johnson, 30, daughter of late musician Johnson, was found dead under mysterious circumstances in her rented premises in Kodambakkam on Friday by her mother and friends.Shan, a divorcee, was the singer in a western music band named ‘The Sound Bulb’ while in her professional life she was the marketing manager in a firm in Mylapore. Her Kerala-based mother Rani had come over to Chennai and was staying with Shan’s aunt in Mylapore.
When her mother called Shan on Friday morning she got no response and an anxious Rani went to the house where her daughter was staying. She found Shan’s room, in a house on Chakrapani street, locked from the inside. By that time, some of her friends too had reached the scene.Borrowing a crowbar, they broke open the door only to see Shan lying dead on the bed with blankets all around her. The air conditioner and fan were working at that time. Her father, Johnson, who had composed music for more than 300 movies, died after a heart attack in Chennai in 2011 while her only brother died in a bike accident in 2012.
