TMZ is reporting that Chester Bennington of Linkin Park has committed suicide. His body was discovered this morning just before 9 AM.
Law enforcement sources told TMZ that the singer hanged himself at a private residence in Palos Verdes Estates in Los Angeles County. Bennington was married and leaves behind 6 children.
Chester was very close with Chris Cornell of Soundgarden, who committed suicide this past May. Today would have been Cornell's 53rd Birthday.
