“Lead Singer of the Cranberries Dolores O’Riordan died of Fentanyl poisoning Monday, said a source in the London Police Department. Authorities found counterfeit fentanyl near the 46 years old rocker’s bed.

Earlier, an article shared by The Mirror revealed the report of the coroner. According to report, Dolores O’Riordan’s cause of death could remain a mystery for months. Here’s the report:
“The coroner is currently waiting to compile all the evidence – including potential toxicology reports – before an inquest will be opened, Westminster’s Coroner’s Court confirmed today.
The 46-year-old Cranberries singer’s body was discovered on Monday morning at the Hilton hotel on Park Lane in west London. It’s not yet known if a post-mortem will need to be carried out.
The case is being looked after by the coroner’s office in Westminster – but it could be months before the inquest is opened and completed.”
Speaking after Dolores’ body was discovered on Monday, a Metropolitan Police spokesman said:
“Police in Westminster are dealing with a sudden death. Officers were called at 09.05hrs on Monday, 15 January to a hotel in Park Lane.
A woman in her mid 40s was pronounced dead at the scene. At this early stage the death is being treated as unexplained. Inquiries continue.”
