British photographer David Hamilton was unresponsive when he was found by a neighbour at his Paris home and later pronounced dead. Police say the 83-year-old may have taken his own life. Hamilton's work appeared in high-end fashion magazines. He was well-known for his images of naked or scantily-clad young models. At the time of his death he'd been accused of sexual assault by a French TV and radio host who said he'd raped her when she modelled for him at the age of 13. Hamilton denied the allegation. Police are investigating the cause of his death.
