The London coroner’s office has announced that late Cranberries singer Dolores O’Riordan’s cause of death will not be known until at least April.
The coroner’s officer Stephen Earl provided more details about the circumstances of O’Riordan’s death on January 15th at the age of 46.
“The London ambulance service was contacted and verified her death at the scene,” Earl told The Guardian; O’Riordan was found unresponsive in her London hotel room Monday. “Subsequently, the Met police attended and they determined the death to be non-suspicious.” Earl added that a postmortem exam had been carried out and that the coroners’ office was waiting on the results.
A rep for the Westminster Coroners’ Court told Rolling Stone that an April 3rd hearing has been scheduled to determine when to release their findings regarding O’Riordan’s death.
Late Cranberries singer Dolores O’Riordan is set to be laid to rest alongside alongside her beloved late father, MailOnline can reveal.
The singer is expected to be buried on the family plot in a cemetery, near her hometown of Friarstown, in a quiet corner of southern Ireland.
Her funeral is expected within the next few days and a week after her sudden death at the age of 46 in a Park Lane hotel room.
She will be buried alongside her father Terence, who died in the winter of 2011 at the age of 68 from cancer.
Local priest Father James Walton said the family had told him they wished for her funeral service to be at his church St. Alibe’s – and for her remains to be laid to rest in her father’s grave.
The grave is dedicated to ‘the loving memory’ of Mr O’Riordan and the family have added a deeply personal touch by placing caricatures of comedians Laurel and Hardy by the head stone.
Dolores O’Riordan was deeply religious, performing for the Pope. She also criticized abortion.
She told Rolling Stone, “It’s not good for women to go through the procedure and have something living sucked out of your bodies. It belittles women — even though some women say, ‘Oh, I don’t mind to have one.’ Every time a woman has an abortion, it just crushes her self-esteem, smaller and smaller and smaller.”
