Trans-Siberian Orchestra creator Paul O’Neill’s death due to prescription drug intoxication
Back on April 5, 2017, it was announced that Trans-Siberian Orchestra leader and former Savatage producer Paul O’Neill had passed away at the age of 61 due to chronic illness. An autopsy report reportedly reveals a different cause for O’Neill‘s death.
The following is an excerpt from an article from TMZ earlier today:
“TMZ obtained a copy of O’Neill‘s autopsy report, and it says he died of intoxication from a mix of methadone, codeine, diazepam (generic Valium) and doxylamine (an antihistamine).
According to the doc, the cause of death is intoxication … but it also mentions other ailments O’Neill was battling … such as mild heart disease, hypertension and moderate hardening of the arteries. The medical examiner determined the death to be accidental.”
