The late Static-X frontman Wayne Static's cause of death has reportedly been revealed as “mixed prescription drug (oxycodone, hydromorphone, alprazolam) with alcohol toxicity (hours) due to chronic prescription drug and alcohol abuse (years).”
Blabbermouth.net obtained a copy of the coroner’s report:
"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."
"[Wayne's] wife said he took oxycodone, Xanax (alprzolam) and alcohol to relive panic attacks. He took Xanax on a daily basis and was compliant with the prescribed dosage. His wife stated he would occasionally have his own prescription for oxycodone, but he would usually take hers. The decedent also had a history of gynecomastia … His wife stated she and the decedent had a history of cocaine and ecstasy abuse, but they stopped using illicit drugs in 2009.
"The decedent's mother stated he was a self-admitted alcoholic. She believed his drinking had been a problem for about two years. His wife and his mother stated he was not suicidal."
Static, whose real name was Wayne Richard Wells, was just getting ready to head out tour with Powerman 5000 and Drowning Pool when he was found dead at his home in California November 1, 2014, at age 48.
