Former Faith No More singer Chuck Mosley died of heroin overdose, police say, after finding several syringes in the proximity of the body. An autopsy will have to confirm the suspicions though.
Police suspects that Chuck Mosley’s cause of death is linked to drugs. More specifically, they believe that he overdosed.
TMZ reports that the officers found two syringes a baggie and a spoon with heroin residue in the proximity of Mosley’s body.
Chuck Mosley was found unconscious on Thursday, November 9, by his longtime partner, Pip Logan, at the home the couple shared in Cleveland. She last saw him alive that same day, around 11 in the morning. She went out with a friend, only to come back at 8 in the evening and find Mosley lying lifeless on the living room floor.
The cause of death has yet to be determined.
After his passing, Mosley’s family released a statement saying that the rocker had been sober for a long time before losing his life “due to the disease of addiction”.
Faith No More also released a statement on the band’s official Facebook page. “It’s with a heavy, heavy heart we acknowledge the passing of our friend and bandmate, Chuck Mosley, the statement read, further describing him as “a reckless and caterwauling force of energy who delivered with conviction and helped set us on a track of uniqueness and originality that would not have developed the way it had had he not been a part.”
Chuck Mosley was best known for being the frontman of the rock band Faith No More between 1984 and 1988.
He is survived by his partner Pip Logan, his two daughters, Erica and Sophie and his grandson Wolfgang Logan Mosley.
