John Lennon evidently had security concerns just months before his tragic and violent death outside his Dakota apartment building in New York in late 1980.
JOHN Lennon complained in a handwritten note about the lack of security at his Dakota apartment just seven months before he was shot dead in front of the historic Central Park West building. In the April 28, 1980, memo to his aide Fred Seaman, the tragic Beatle wrote: “Explain to me why we are sleeping here with a front door that any nut can open (it doesn’t lock). People know I’m here . . .”
