British rocker Pete Doherty is facing the possibility he will be re-interviewed by police over the death of an actor at a party he attended in 2006 after cops re-opened the investigation.

Mark Blanco toppled from the railings of an apartment block in east London in December 2006 after he was thrown out of a bash attended by The Libertines frontman.

Police officials ruled out suspicious circumstances, insisting Blanco had either committed suicide or plunged to his death as he tried to jump onto a nearby lamp-post, but the actor's mother Sheila was unsatisfied with the findings and has long called for the probe to be re-opened.

The investigation has now been re-launched, according to Britain's Daily Mail, with a police source telling the publication, "(It will be) a meticulous search for the truth... A number of individuals who were at the party will have to be interviewed."

It is not yet known whether Doherty will be asked to help police with their inquiries.
