The body of Linkin Park singer Chester Bennington was discovered this morning at his private residence in Palos Verdes Estates in L.A. County . He was 41.
Law enforcement officials told TMZ that the singer hanged himself.
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.
Sadly, Linkin Park released a new music video this morning.
TMZ is also reporting Bennington was very close with Soundgarden singer Chris Corenell, who killed himself in May. Today would have been Cornell’s 53 birthday.
