D.A.R.K. just released a statement which includes Olé’s first words:
My friend, partner, and the love of my life is gone. My heart is broken and it is beyond repair. Dolores is beautiful. Her art is beautiful. Her family is beautiful. The energy she continues to radiate is undeniable. I am lost. I miss her so much. I will continue to stumble around this planet for some time knowing well there’s no real place for me here now.
The statement also reveals that “Dolores was in London working on a mixing session with Martin Glover / “Youth” for the follow-up to Science Agrees which hopes to see a future release as that would have been Dolores’ wish.”
This morning, independent.ie announced that post-mortem results are due for release tomorrow.
Let’s note note that website Santa Monica Observer announced that a source in the London Police Department said Dolores O’ Riordan died of Fentanyl poisoning:
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. The source added that an official cause of death will probably have to wait for a toxicology report. He added that suicide and a deliberate overdose are suspected.
Several media around the world are now quoting this article as a reliable source of information, though this U.S. newspaper is known for publishing fake news, so we’d strongly advised to wait for the coroner report!
The Mirror reported that Dolores’ body was discovered in the bathroom of her suite by the cleaners. She was staying at the London Hilton on Park Lane.
