Faith No More's Chuck Mosley may have died from overdose: police
Former Faith No More singer Chuck Mosley may have succumbed to a heroin overdose, police said.
Mosley was discovered dead with a pair of syringes, a spoon featuring an undisclosed residue substance and a bag next to him last Thursday at his Cleveland residence, law enforcement officials said in a police report.
His death is listed in the police report as a suspected heroin overdose.
The singer’s body was first discovered by his partner Pip Logan and their friend. Mosley’s family did not provide a specific cause of death when they confirmed his passing in a statement last week, though they did attribute it to “the disease of addiction.”
An official cause of death won’t be known for a while, as the Medical Examiner won’t receive results from the toxicology test for several weeks, according to TMZ.
Mosley, who was 57, maintained a lengthy stretch of sobriety before his death, his family said last week.

He joined the band in 1983 and remained a member until 1988.
He is survived by Logan, his two daughters and a grandson.
