Linkin Park singer Chester Bennington killed himself by hanging according to TMZ. His body was discovered by authorities on Friday morning at his Los Angeles residence. He was 41 years old, and he leaves behind a wife and 6 children from two wives.
The rock star was apparently close to Chris Cornell of Sound Garden/Audioslave who died earlier this year by hanging. Cornell would have been celebrating his 53rd birthday today.
Bennington posted an open letter to Cornell on Twitter last May on the day of the latter’s death:
