Dolores O’Riordan died back on January 15, and since then, her fans have been restless. The cause of death of the Irish alternative band The Cranberries’ singer has not known until today.
Now, there’s more light being shed on what happened to the beloved singer. It seems that she dies due to drowning due to alcohol intoxication, according to the coroner.
She was discovered submerged in her bath at the time she was found and an examination of the body back them did not show any signs of injuries neither self-harm.
There was a bottle of champagne nearby, and five miniature bottles of alcohol, and also containers of prescription drugs.
According to the toxicology report, Dolores’ blood had ‘therapeutic’ levels of medication, but it seems that her alcohol level was extremely high: four times over the legal limit of driving.
Dolores died while she was in London. She was in town for ‘a short recording session,’ the band’s publicist stated back then.
‘No further details are available at this time. Family members are devastated to hear the breaking news and have requested privacy at this very difficult time.’
TMZ reported that Dolores attempted to take her life back in 2013 by overdosing.
She was suffering a mental breakdown, and she was also diagnosed with bipolar disorder.
A lot of her emotional problems have been attributed to the fact that she was abused when she was only a child.
Our prayers go to her family, friends and all her loved ones.
