Chris Cornell Commits Suicide at 52

Legendary musician Chris Cornell, was found Wednesday evening at the MGM Grand Detroit hotel, after peforming at a concert with his band Soundgarden.

The initial reports from Cornell’s representative, was that the singer’s death was “sudden and unexpected”, and that the family were working with the medical examiner to help determind the cause of death.

Reports say Cornell’s wife called a family friend and asked him to check on Cornell, who then forced open a hotel room door and found Cornell on the bathroom floor.

It was announced by the medical examiner at around 1.45pm that Chris Cornell had indeed killed himself by hanging.

There has been no news yet as to whether a note was left to give his family some idea behind the tragedy, but our thoughts are with them, and his millions of fans.
