A few weeks ago we reported that GWAR’s Oderus Urungus, aka Dave Brockie, had passed away at his Richmond home on March 23, of undisclosed causes. He was 50. Now we learn that the Virginia medical examiner has ruled the death an accidental heroin overdose.

According to the New York Daily News, “Arkuie Williams, administrator at the chief medical examiner’s office, said Tuesday that Brockie’s cause of death was acute heroin toxicity.”
