The mystery around why someone would commit suicide strikes many of us unfortunately at different times in our lives. It can be a family member or a close friend possibly and there are those we have grown to appreciate from a distance but at the same time feel like they are part of our lives. Sports figures, TV celebrities, movie stars, singers, politicians, and musicians all can feel like they are part of our lives in someway.. Why would he or she take their own life?
Chris Cornell, Soundgarden singer, 52 years old, was found unresponsive on the bathroom floor of a hotel room at the MGM Grand Casino in Detroit early this past Thursday. He was reportedly pronounced dead at the scene, according to The New York Times.
“When the units arrived they were met by a gentleman who indicated that Chris Cornell had been found in his room,” police spokesman Michael Woody told the AP Thursday morning. “When officers went to the room they found Chris Cornell laying in his bathroom, unresponsive and he had passed away.”
As and accomplished musician, singer, and songwriter, Cornell is best remembered as the lead vocalist, primary songwriter, and rhythm guitarist for Seattle rock band Soundgarden and as lead vocalist and songwriter for the rock supergroup Audioslave. He was also known for his numerous solo works and soundtrack contributions since 1991, and as founder and frontman for Temple of the Dog, the one-off tribute band dedicated to his late friend Andrew Wood.
Our prayers are for his wife and family.
