Linkin Park Singer Hangs Himself

Many shocks are left reeling after learning that front man of Linkin Park, Chester Bennington, has committed suicide. The singer’s body was found right before 9 A.M on Thursday.

TMZ broke the story of the death. According to law enforcement sources, Bennington hanged himself at a private residence in Palos Verdes Estates in the Los Angeles County.

Bennington was married with six children from two wives. He has struggled with drugs and alcohol for years and had talked about committing suicide in the past. Bennington revealed he had been abused by an older male when he was a child.

Chris Cornell, who also hanged himself in May, was a close friend to Bennington. Today would have been Cornell’s 53’rd birthday.
