Here’s something that no music fan expected to hear this morning – famous Linkin Park singer, Chester Bennington is no more. He has committed suicide by hanging himself at a private residence in Palos Verdes Estates in L.A. County. Thursday morning 9 am, his body was discovered by an employee.
The police have confirmed it with TMZ that Bennington was alone at the time of the suicide. His family was out of town when he decided to take this drastic step.
Chester divorced his first wife back in 2005 and then remarried Talinda Ann Bentley, a former Playboy model. Chester had a total of 6 children from both the wives.
Chester has had problems with drugs and alcohol for years. TMZ claims that he had previously shared that he had considered committing suicide before owing to his years of child abuse by an older male.
It is also worth mentioning here that Chester’s close friend, Chris Cornell, also committed suicide by hanging, as recently as May.
