In the aftermath of the death of Linkin Park singer Chester Bennington, more details on his death are coming to light. We warn readers before moving forward that the details concern the manner in which he apparently took his own life.

According to TMZ, law enforcement officials explained that Bennington committed suicide by hanging. The musician was discovered hanging from a door separating his bedroom from his closet. The rocker reportedly was found with a belt around his neck and sources state that there was a partially empty bottle of alcohol in the room where Chester died, but no evidence of drugs. Bennington has spoken frankly in the past about his issues with drugs and alcohol. The singer reportedly left no suicide note.

TMZ’s article points out the similarities between Bennington’s death and that of his close friend, Chris Cornell, who died in a hanging incident after a show in Detroit earlier this year. Bennington’s death coincided with the date of Cornell’s birthday.

As previously reported, Bennington was discovered by a housekeeper and police were called to the scene. It’s been reported that one of his Linkin Park bandmates arrived at his residence shortly after police arrived as he was picking Bennington up to head to a photo shoot.
