According to Blabbermouth.net, the cause of death of the late Static-X frontman Wayne Static on November last year was his consumption of a mix of Xanax and other prescription drugs with alcohol.
The official coroner’s report, obtained by Blabbermouth, states, “On November 1, at approximately 0700 hours, [Wayne] and his wife went to bed. His wife stated that just prior to going to bed, he crushed one-half of a 30 mg oxycodone pill and consumed it. The oxycodone had been prescribed to his wife. He also drank an unknown amount of alcohol. His wife awoke at around 1530 hours. She found the decedent dead in the bed and called 911 at 1547 hours. Paramedics arrived and confirmed death at 1600 hours, noting rigor mortis and lividity. There was no evidence of foul play or any indication a struggle had taken place.”
