Linkin Park singer Chester Bennington has committed suicide....
Law enforcement sources tell us the singer hanged himself at a private residence in Palos Verdes Estates in L.A. County. His body was discovered Thursday just before 9 AM.
Chester was married with 6 children from 2 wives.
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.
The suicide of this man saddens me deeply as Linkin Park has always been one of my top bands.
However sad this is, I will choose to remember the good that Chester and his band did for me. I remember plenty of days as a troubled teen when listening to Linkin Park may have been the only thing keeping me from committing suicide myself.
Rest Easy Chester, we will never forget you!
