From Reuters - January 16, 2018

DUBLIN (Reuters) - The death in London of Cranberries lead singer Dolores ORiordan is not being treated as suspicious, police said on Tuesday, as tributes flowed in for one of Irelands most successful artists.

ORiordan, 46, was found dead in a London hotel on Monday morning during a recording trip to London ahead of a planned tour, her publicist said. No cause of death has been given.

London police said in a statement that a 46-year-old woman was discovered at a hotel in Londons Park Lane early on Monday and was pronounced dead at the scene. The death is not being treated as suspicious, the statement said.

ORiordan was catapulted to fame as a shy 22-year-old in 1993 when songs from her debut album were picked up by MTV. The band, whose hits included Linger and Zombie went on to sell over 40 million records to become Irelands second-best-selling rock band after U2.
