DEAD FAN RETURNS TO HAUNT DURST: Fred Durst might have thought that he'd put the whole crushing to death of Jessica Michalik behind him, when he sort-of-co-operated with the inquest into her death. Now, though, her parents are launching legal actions against the individual members of Limp Bizkit and their company in order to get some sort of closure. The cases are liable to be complex - there are other defendants, including the promoters, stage builders and security companies for the Big Day Out - and the girl's mother and father are pursuing separate actions.

At the inquest into the death of Jessica, witness told the coroner that Durst had been on stage encouraging the fans to goad the security team trying to deal with crush, behaviour which was described by the coroner as "alarming and inflamatory."
