Chester Bennington, 41, was found dead in an apparent suicide at his Palos Verdes home this past Thursday. His suicide coincided with the birthday of his late friend Chris Cornell who had committed suicide by hanging this past May. His close friends said Benngington was deeply affected by the death of Cornell, he sang at a gathering in memory of him soon after his demise. It is reported that his family was out of town at the time of the incident. He is survived by six children.
His band is currently in the middle of a tour and released a new song merely a couple of hours before the news of his death broke out.
We extend our condolences to his family, friends and loved ones. May he rest in peace.
