Chester Bennington Commits Suicide

CHESTER Bennington, the rock singer whose former bands include Dead By Sunrise, has committed suicide.

The celebrity news website  had quoted law enforcement sources as saying Bennington, 41, was found hanged in his Palos Verdes Estates home in the Los Angeles area at 9am Thursday local time. The Associated Press later confirmed the news.

He is survived by six children.

Bennington is best known for his time in cross-over band Linkin Park but isalso a former frontman for Stone Temple Pilots.

He died on the birthday of another tragic star, his close friend Chris Cornell of Soundgarden.

After Cornell died by his own hand in May, Bennington performed the Leonard Cohen classic “Hellelujah” at his funeral.
