Spoiler

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.

Chester was very close with Chris Cornell, who himself committed suicide by hanging in May. Today would have been Cornell's 53rd birthday. Chester wrote an open letter to Chris on the day of Chris' suicide

Dude! That band was unbelievably popular when I went to school. I feel sorry for millions of fans. LP were probably the only non-bullshit alt band from the Mtv age. Really sad. Rest in peace, Chester.

Not that surprising. They're the first to break a lot of these stories.

It's not a hoax, other sites are confirming it as well and TMZ is a reliable source.

This is heartbreaking, may he rest in peace.
