INDIANAPOLIS (AP) _ Alternative singer-songwriter Jason Molina has died at his home in Indianapolis. He was 39.
The Marion County Coroner's Office confirmed Molina died on Saturday. It has not yet determined the cause of death.
His record label, Bloomington, Ind.-based Secretly Canadian, says he stopped touring in 2009 ``to deal with severe alcoholism.''
The label says the Lorain, Ohio, native released more than 12 albums under the name Songs: Ohia and the band Magnolia Electric Co., which he started in 2003.
A message attributed to his family and posted on the label's website on Sept. 19, 2011, said he had been in and out of rehabilitation facilities and hospitals in England, Chicago, Indianapolis, and New Orleans over the previous two years and was raising goats and chickens in West Virginia.
