According to information obtained by TMZ, police suspect he died of a heroin overdose after finding syringes near his body.

We were shocked and saddened to learn of the news of the death of original Faith No More singer Chuck Mosley last week. 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".

Mosley was found dead Thursday (November 9) by friend and longtime partner Pip Logan. Logan told cops she last saw Chuck earlier that day around 11 AM. The singer's family described his death as being "due to the disease of addiction".

We're sharing the manner in which he passed in the hope that it might serve as a warning or wake up call or beacon to anyone else struggling to fight for sobriety.

They have now set up a GoFundMe campaign for "a small private memorial for family and friends" as well as to create a "large scale, loud, bright, attractive concert", the latter of which will take place at a later date.

"He has left his lifelong partner, two daughters, and his grandson without the ability to send him off properly or to move into their next phase of life without their loved one".

A toxicology report will be run on Mosley's body, but it will take weeks for the results to be processed.

Recording on Faith No More's first two albums, "We Care A Lot" and "Introduce Yourself", Chuck Mosley was the key that unlocked the band's funk metal sound of the mid-1980s.
