David Brockie was killed by an accidental heroin overdose, coroners have found. Brockie, who performed under the stage name Oderus Urungus in the metal band GWAR, was found dead aged 50 in his Richmond, Virginia home on the 23rd March this year.

The rocker's cause of death was initially mysterious as he was found sitting in a chair but Richmond officials ruled on Tuesday that he died of an accidental overdose of heroin.
