Soundgarden’s Chris Cornell: Suicide a Likely Cause of Death

The body of Chris Cornell was found at the MGM Grand Detroit late Wednesday night, May 17th. A young man of just 52, Chris led a successful music career for decades fronting popular rock acts like Soundgarden and Temple of the Dog.

While Chris lauded enviable success, he also suffered from mental illness. After performing at a concert in Detroit, he was found lifeless later in his hotel room, suicide the likely cause of death. A source close to him told WDIV, the “friend forced open the hotel room door where Cornell was found dead in the bathroom with something around his neck.”

A man with a history of drug addiction and a familiarity with mental illness, Chris began using drugs at a very early age. “I went from being a daily drug user at 13 to having bad drug experiences and quitting drugs by the time I was 14 and then not having any friends until the time I was 16,” he told Rolling Stone in 1994.
