Marco Pantani's place of death at the Le Rose hotel in Rimini, Italy, was investigated poorly according to his family’s lawyer. A newly-released video taken on the day of his death, February 14 2004, shows police fumbling though the room and appears to support the case.

Rimini's head prosecutor, Paolo Giovagnoli could use the video as evidence in a new investigation that he opened in August into the possible murder of the Italian 1998 Giro d'Italia and Tour de France winner.
