    Default Linkin Park Singer Commits Suicide By Hanging

    Very sad


    Linkin Park singer Chester Bennington has committed suicide ... TMZ has learned.
    Law enforcement sources tell us the singer hanged himself at a private residence in Palos Verdes Estates in L.A. County. His body was discovered Thursday just before 9 AM.
    Chester was married with 6 children from 2 wives.
    The singer struggled with drugs and alcohol for years. He had said in the past he had considered committing suicide because he had been abused as a child by an older male.

    I will never understand things like this. People with all the access in the world to get help, and never do. People who worked so hard to hone a talent and make wonderful contributions to society tend to make the most selfish decisions that effect their family. Those poor kids.

    It happened with an immediate family member of mine. It haunts those left behind forever, no doubt about that.

    Same. You don't forgive them really, but it's definitely a little more understandable with average people. Sure they can get help, but not to the same extent or quality. Like graphic said, he likely had access to any and every method of help possible.

    Difficult to process because I think he just spoke about Chris Cornell and even sung at his funeral. Hard to put yourself in these people's shoes though.

    When I step back and look at it purely in the abstract, it's not too difficult to understand that anyone who does that obviously had some serious mental demons tormenting them. The problem is reconciling that when it's someone close to you. It's just near impossible to comprehend how someone close to you can fall to it.

    All it takes for someone in this sort of mental situation is one bad moment, one weak hour, one bad conversation and it can end like this. There's nothing really that money or access to help can do about that because it's such a constant battle.

    I grew up listening to Linkin Park and its really sad to see this. I'd say hanging yourself takes some preparation over just shooting yourself or something so this might've been a plan for a while, plus on Chris Cornell's birthday, its really sad regardless.
    "It's just unfortunate that we've been penalized so much this year and nothing has happened to the Pistons, the Palace or the city of Detroit," he said. "It's almost like it's always our fault. The league knows it. They should be ashamed of themselves to let the security be as lax as it is around here."

    Maybe they said there was an open bottle of liquor next to him. All you need is a belt or a sheet though to be honest.
