The inquest into Dolores O’riordan’s death has been adjourned until April while the coroner awaits for the results of “various tests”.
The Cranberries singer was found dead at the age of 46 in a London hotel room on Monday morning and a spokesperson for the Metropolitan Police stated that her death was not being treated as suspicious.
The inquest opened on Friday at Westminster Coroner’s Court, and coroner’s officer Stephen Earl said, “This lady was staying at a hotel in central London when on Monday 15 January she was found unresponsive in her room.
“The London Ambulance Service was contacted and verified her death at the scene… Subsequently the Met Police attended and they determined the death to be non-suspicious.
“A post-mortem has now been carried out and the court is awaiting results of various tests that have been commissioned.”
According to the Press Association, coroner Shirley Radcliffe adjourned the hearing until 3 April, when a date for the full inquest will be scheduled.
The Irish singer, who was known around the globe for songs like as Linger, Zombie and Dreams, had been in London to record a cover of Zombie with hard rock band Bad Wolves.
Father James Walton, the parish priest from her hometown, recently said her funeral would take place in Ballybricken in County Limerick, Ireland.
“Her family are still waiting for more details to come from London about her death,” he said, according to the BBC. “The plan is for her to be buried here at home. When that will be will depend on when her body is released.”
