Dolores O'Riordan's post-mortem to take place tomorrow, coroner confirms

Died: 15 January, 2018, in London, aged 46.

No official cause of death has been reported but one is expected once toxicology reports are finished.

"Irish and worldwide singer Dolores O'Riordan has died suddenly in London today, family members are devastated", Lindsey Holmes said in a statement.

O'Riordan's management and family has requested privacy at the moment. The Corrs stars Jim and Andrea Corr have also added their thoughts, while heavy rockers Bad Wolves, who were working with Dolores on a cover of The Cranberries' Zombie when she died, have posted a message on Facebook, stating they are "shocked and saddened" by the news.

In a statement from the band, Koretsky described the Cranberries singer as the love of his life.

"We were looking for a replacement".

Dolores has been instructed by her doctors to immediately cease work for the next 4 weeks. She had such a strong voice and she sang in an effortless manner. She had been in London for a recording session.

She split from her husband of 20 years in 2014, and survived by 3 children.

Tabloid paper Metro ran with the story of the tragic death on its front page this week under the headline 'Ya es zombi', which translates as "Now she's a zombie". I love being a mum.

"I was chuffed to see inside the place". I was devastated. Everyone saw me being dumped, publicly, at the disco. "She never lost sight of who she was and where she was from".

"Dolores was such an icon but she was really just such a lovely person". Dolores you have left warm memories and a legacy which will keep growing in the coming years, and a city which is proud to have been her birthplace and her home. The bombing was committed by the Irish Republican Army, a paramilitary organization that sought to remove Northern Ireland from the United Kingdom and establish an independent socialist republic encompassing all of Ireland. Johnathan Bell, 3, and Tim Parry, 12, were killed when the Irish Republican Army detonated two bombs in trash cans.

The band released three more studio albums before splitting up in 2003. O'Riordan was from Limerick, Ireland, and Higgins spoke of The Cranberries' "influence on rock and pop music in Ireland" and over the globe.

As a public figure, O'Riordan has had her share of controversies.

O'Riordan has been a victim of depression, bipolar disorder, and sexual abuse over the course of her life, which led people to wonder if her death was a suicide.

According to a report in the Daily Mail, staff at the Hilton on Park Lane in London had gone into her room believing it was empty. Only one Auntie Lolo, you will be sorely missed.
