Linkin Park Singer Commits Suicide

Linkin Park lead singer Chester Bennington took his own life at a Palos Verdes, California residence on Thursday morning. The cause of death was asphyxiation by hanging. He was 41.

Chester killed himself two months after Soundgarden lead vocalist Chris Cornell was found dead in a Detroit, Michigan hotel room on May 18. Cornell’s death was also ruled a suicide by hanging.

Bennington was close to Cornell and even sang the late Leonard Cohen’s ballad “Hallelujah” at the 52-year-old singer’s funeral (pictured below).

The grieving father-of-six wrote a touching note to Cornell on Twitter and Instagram, moving many fans to tears, according to

Chester called Cornell one of his largest inspirations: “I just watched a video of you singing ‘A day in the life’ by the Beatles and thought of my dream. I’d like to think you were saying goodbye in your own way,” he wrote.
