He didn't die. If he did, his son Pentawer would have been Pharaoh and we wouldn't know about this at all... The wife was called Tiye. The others involved were mentioned with their names changed -- Mesedjsure ("Re hates him") possibly was Meryre ("Re loves him") originally, and Binemwase ("the evil in Thebes") could have been Khaemwase ("Born in Thebes" -- a popular name in the 20th dynasty).
He did die although not straight away. Later in the report Ramses is refered to as 'The Great God' meaning he died, probably as a result of the conspiracy (poison maybe) but I believe he lived long enough to start the investigation.
It was partially his fault though for having not properly established order of priority among his wives and their children. Cartouches which should have held the name of his Great Royal Wife are left blank although it appears to have been Isis who was probably the mother of Ramses IV
