As you know, Alexi Laiho passed away on December 29, 2020. The result of the autopsy is now available. Laiho’s former Sinergy band member Kimberly Goss, to whom the ex-Children Of Bodom genius was apparently still legally married, reported on social media with the official cause of death (see below). So Alexi is on one “Alcohol-induced deterioration of the liver and the adjacent tissue of the pancreas” deceased.
A chilling example
Alexi Laiho also had a cocktail of painkillers, opioids and sleeping pills in his bloodstream. Kimberly Goss and Laiho had married in February 2002 and apparently never got divorced. Laiho filed for divorce in November 2002, but quickly withdrew the application. In the meantime, Alexi had married Australian Kelli Wright, even though he couldn’t have done so under Finnish law, as he was still married to Goss.
Goss also writes: “The loss of this extraordinarily talented and beautiful soul is a tragedy that was completely avoidable. He still had so many good years in him. Imagine all the great music we could still get if he’d only accepted help. I plead with anyone struggling with alcohol or any other drug addiction: Please seek support. You don’t have to share the same fate. When people try to help you, remember that they are doing it out of love and concern. So don’t push it away. Please do not surround yourself with people who encourage your addiction. Let this be a cautionary example that no one is invincible. I don’t want his death to be in vain. “ In addition, Goss plans to set up a memorial foundation in Finland to help others who are struggling with the same demons as Alexi Laiho did.
