Sid Vicious (real name John Ritchie) dies of a heroin overdose

The toxicology report during Sid’s autopsy revealed he had died from an 80% heroin solution, whereas his normal dosage was around 5%; he had no chance at survival and it was concluded he had committed suicide. However, just before her death, his mother confessed to giving him the lethal dose to spare him from his sentence for the death of his former girlfriend Nancy.

His body was cremated and his ashes were scattered.
