There were several similarities between the two friends. And now a latest TMZ report claims that there were similarities in how the two ended their lives. Merely two months ago, Chris Cornell ended his life by hanging himself. May 18, 2017, Cornell was found dead by his bodyguard in the bathroom of his room at the MGM Grand in Detroit after performing at a show with Soundgarden at the Fox Theatre on May 17.
The TMZ report says, “Chester Bennington may have mimicked the suicide of his close friend, Chris Cornell, because they died in virtually identical ways…Law enforcement sources tell us, the Linkin Park singer was found hanging from a door separating his bedroom from his closet…We’re also told Chester was found with a belt around his neck. Chris was found with an exercise band around his neck”.
