Friday, authorities were trying to determine why Jani Lane, former lead singer of the ‘80s glam-band Warrant, was at a Woodland Hills motel when he died Thursday.
Jani Lane has a home in the South Bay, so it is unclear exactly why he was at the Ventura Boulevard motel, according to law enforcement sources familiar with the case.
Alcohol and prescription drugs were found in the motel room, the sources said, but there was no indication of suicide.
An autopsy will determine how the 47-year-old Redondo Beach resident died, according to the Los Angeles County Coroner.
“He was discovered unresponsive,” said Ed Winter, Coroner’s Deputy Chief.
The autopsy will be done to determine the cause of death.
Jani Lane, born John Oswald, was pronounced dead at the scene by fire department paramedics.
