(CHICAGO) -- Ex-Weezer bassist Mikey Welsh, who was found dead in a Chicago hotel room Saturday afternoon, apparently predicted his own death over Twitter two weeks beforehand.
Welsh, who played bass for the rock band from 1998 to 2001, was in Chicago to see Weezer play, and oddly tweeted two weeks prior that he dreamed he would die while in Chicago from a heart attack in his sleep.
“Dreamt i died in chicago next weekend (heart attack in my sleep). need to write my will today,” Welsh tweeted on Sept. 26.
Police do not suspect any foul play, but no cause of death has been determined yet. His body was found by hotel staff after he failed to check out of his room at the Raffaello Hotel, authorities said. He was found unresponsive and on the floor, according to The Chicago Tribune.
Welsh was pronounced dead at the scene by the Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office and narcotic use is suspected as the cause of death, the Tribune reported.
Welsh, who was 40 years old at the time of his death, left the highly successful band after suffering a nervous breakdown. Since leaving the band behind he worked as an artist.
