Coroner Makes First Comment On Cranberries Singer Dolores O’Riordan’s Autopsy


The Irish Independent reports that the post-mortem results from the death of Cranberries’ singer Dolores O’Riordan are now due for release tomorrow, the coroner has confirmed. O’Riordan died on Monday in her London hotel room.

The results were initially expected for release today.

The inquest into the death of the 46-year-old is expected to open on Friday.

London police yesterday confirmed that they are not treating the death of the world-renowned rock star as suspicious.

The coroner for Westminster is now leading the investigation into the sudden death of the mum-of-three at the Hilton Hotel on Park Lane on Monday.

As part of the post-mortem, toxicology tests will be conducted.

O’Riordan was raised Roman Catholic, and performed at the Vatican for Pope John Paull II as well as for Pope Benedict XVI. O’Riordan had spoken out against abortion on at least one occasion during an interview with Rolling Stone Magazine:

“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.”
