Dave Brockie, frontman for the heavy metal band GWAR, has been found dead in his Richmond, Va., home at age 50.
Richmond police spokeswoman Dionne Waugh says officers were called to home shortly before 7 p.m. Sunday for a report of a dead person. When officers arrived, Brockie – who went by the stage name Oderus Urungus – was found dead inside the home.
Detectives don't suspect foul play at this time, and Waugh says the medical examiner's office will determine cause of death.
