The Los Angeles County coroner confirmed that Linkin Park singer Chester Bennington died by hanging.
The 41-year-old was found by an employee on Thursday in the bedroom of his house but no note has not been found, the death is being treated as a suspected suicide.
“My whole life, I’ve just felt a little off,” he said in an interview earlier this year with Music Choice. “I find myself getting into these patterns of behaviour or thought – especially when I’m stuck up here [in my head]; I like to say that, ‘This is like a bad neighbourhood, and I should not go walking alone.’
Throughout his life Bennington had struggled with depression and substance abuse. He also appeared to be deeply impacted by the loss of Soundgarden singer Chris Cornell, who died in May and was good friends with Bennington.
