Breaking news on the death of GWAR frontman Dave Brockie (a.k.a. Oderus Urungus).

According to a Richmond, Va., news outlet WTVR, law enforcement is investigating Brockie’s death as drug-related based on evidence gathered at the scene of the singer’s death.

On the evening of March 23, Brockie was found dead on a sofa in his Richmond home by a roommate.
