I want a huge fan of The Cranberries, but you can't not love Zombie. So sad to hear of her passing, but I wouldn't be surprised if it comes out it was suicide or an overdose. They said she was bipolar, on meds for her back issues and I think I read someplace that she was recently divorced.

The Santa Monica Observer, citing a source within the London Police Department, is reporting that O?Riordan died of an overdose of fentanyl, a synthetic opioid that is reportedly 50 times as strong as heroin. Authorities found counterfeit fentanyl by the singer?s bed, and the LPD source noted that suicide was suspected but that a toxicology report would need to be conducted before determining the official cause of death.


O?Riordan suffered from depression and attempted to commit suicide in 2013. and was later diagnosed with bi-polar disorder.
