Dolores O'Riordan drowned in the bathtub after drinking too much and was in "good spirits" before her death, according to an inquest held in London.
O'Riordan died as a result of a "tragic accident", the coroner said.
She had no injuries or evidence of self harm, and had drunk an excessive amount of alcohol, expert witnesses said. ... Toxicology tests showed only "therapeutic" amounts of medication in O'Riordan's blood, but showed up 330mg of alcohol per 100ml of blood.
A junk news site called "The Santa Monica Observer" claimed she killed herself with fentanyl; Yahoo! News and other media still have reportage sourced to this now-obviously fake story.
Surviving members of The Cranberries released a statement.
On January 15th 2018 we lost our dear friend and band mate Dolores O'Riordan.
"Today we continue to struggle to come to terms with what happened.
"Our heartfelt condolences go out to Dolores' children and her family and our thoughts are with them today.
"Dolores will live on eternally in her music. To see how much of a positive impact she had on people's lives has been a source of great comfort to us.
"We'd like to say thank you to all of our fans for the outpouring of messages and their continued support during this very difficult time.
"We request, please, for our privacy to be respected at this time."
Your supervisor would like to speak with you today at 10:53am. Good thing you have a great tasting sandwich to deal with that unreasonable feedback.

In 1993, Trent Reznor/Nine Inch Nails composed music for the first station ID for MTV Japan created by the inimitable Shinya Tsukamoto, director of cyberpunk/horror films like Tetsuo: The Iron Man (1989). Of course, Reznor later penned the below theme song for Tsukamoto’s 2010 film “Tetsuo: The Bullet Man.” (via r/ObscureMedia)
