GWAR's Dave Brockie Died of Accidental Heroin Overdose, Official Report Confirms
Accidental heroin overdose has been confirmed as the official cause of death of GWAR frontman Dave Brockie, aka Oderus Urungus.

As WTVR reports, State Medical Examiner's Office has listed the following cause behind the musician's passing: acute heroin toxicity, means: accident.

Brockie was found dead by his roommate in North Richmond on March 23. Police investigators have immediately found evidence of heroin use, but had to wait for the toxicology report to announce overdose as the official cause.

The frontman's close friends have told CBS 6 how they became worried about the singer's behavior, sharing suspicions about Brockie's marijuana habit taking a bad turn.

Sadly, in one of his final interviews, Oderus has very much opposed the use of heavy drugs. "I just wanna go hard as f--k until I die," he told Andrew Haug. "And I'm not a drug addict, I do like alcohol and I like weed.

"And this is one thing I will say to every single band out there - don't get f--ked up with the coke or heroin, all that bulls--t, just drink and smoke weed," Urungus stressed. "And go hard, go hard 'till you die, go hard 'till death."
