The coroner has determined that Sinéad O’Connor passed away due to natural causes.

After being discovered unconscious at her residence in London in July of the previous year, the Irish singer passed away at the age of 56 during that month.

The London Inner South Coroner’s Court stated at the time that the results of a post-mortem examination could take “several weeks” to come back. At the time, the police stated that the death of Sinéad was not being investigated as suspicious.

This is to clarify that Ms. O’Connor passed away due to natural causes, according to a statement that was given by a spokeswoman for the Southwark Coroners Court on Tuesday afternoon. The statement was obtained from BBC News. The coroner has consequently stopped their involvement in the investigation into her passing.

During the early 1990s, Sinéad soared to prominence on a global scale when her rendition of the Prince-penned song “Nothing Compares 2 U” topped the charts on both the American and European sides of the Atlantic Ocean.

In addition to receiving three Grammy nominations, the song’s follow-up album, titled I Do Not Want What I Haven’t Got, reached number one in both the United States of America and the United Kingdom after it was released in the year 1990.

Throughout her career, Sinéad received seven Grammy Awards and two Brit Awards, of which she won one. In 1991, she was awarded the title of Best Alternative Music Album for her album “I Do Not Want What I Haven’t Got,” which was the first recipient of this honor.

The year 2014 marked the release of her final album, which was titled I’m Not Bossy, I’m The Boss. Despite this, she continued to record songs and perform live throughout her final years.

Sinéad was well-known not only for her work as a singer, but also for her activism and her willingness to speak out against topics that were near and dear to her heart, including abuses that occurred inside the music industry.

The mother of four children, including a son named Shane who committed suicide in January of 2022, Sinéad was a mother to four children.
