GWAR frontman Dave Brockie died from an accidental heroin overdose, the Virginia State Medical Examiner’s Office announced yesterday.

As previously reported, Brockie, who went by the stage name of Oderus Urungus, was found dead at his home in March this year. He was 50.

Brockie’s death followed that of GWAR guitarist Cory Smoot, who died of a heart attack on the band’s tour bus in 2011.
