Boney M star BOBBY FARRELL died of heart disease, according to Russian investigators.
The singer was on tour in Russia when he was found dead in his hotel room in St. Petersburg last week (30Dec10). He had complained of shortness of breath before and after a show the previous night (29Dec10).
His agent explained that the cause of death was not immediately known, adding, "He was not feeling well (on Wednesday night)... This morning, he did not wake up."
Farrell's death was handled by the city's branch of Russia's investigative committee, whose officials have now concluded that disease of the heart was the reason for his demise.
A representative for the committee, Sergei Kapitanov, tells Reuters, "It was not a suspicious death. Heart disease was the cause."
