London police are treating the death of The Cranberries singer Dolores O’Riordan as “not suspicious”.
In legal terms, “a death is suspicious if it is unexpected and its circumstances or cause are medically or legally unexplained”. In the UK if a death is ruled suspicious the coroner will be contacted to open an inquest while police continue to investigations.
Police were called to O’Riordan’s hotel in Park Lane at 9:05am on Monday 15 January 2018. She was pronounced death at the scene. Dolores was 46 years old.
The process now is for the coroner to compile a report but police will not be investigating the death of the singer.
Dolores O’Riordan will be laid to rest in her hometown of Friarstown, in Limerick, Ireland.
