Singer, Clarisse Wopso, 39, was reportedly found dead in a hotel room in France on August 1 and according to betatinz.com, the hotel Clarisse resided since November 2017 has confirmed the news saying,

“A social group called SAMU (a group which caters for homeless people) was responsible for the deceased’s stay at their hotel since November 2017. But Clarisse‘s lifeless body was discovered after the hotel noticed that her room hasn’t been opened since Monday (July 30) and a bad odour was coming out from it.”

According to medical examination, Clarisse had passed away almost a week before her corpse was discovered.
