Details Released on Why Chris Cornell May Have Commit Suicide
Chris Cornell, award-winning music artist and lead singer of ‘Soundgarden’, passed away at age 52 on Wednesday evening. He was discovered dead in his hotel room Thursday morning after performing a show the night before.
His death has been ruled as a suicide. According to TMZ, he hung himself with an exercise band and carabiner on the door of his hotel bathroom.
Cornell’s wife mentioned that he was not previously in a suicidal state and most likely commit suicide because he "may have taken an extra Ativan or two". Ativan is a drug used to treat anxiety, where one of the side effects is suicidal thoughts. The lawyer reminds the public that he was a recovering addict.
"The family believes if Chris took his life, he did not know what he was doing, and that drugs or other substances may have affected his actions."
After overcoming his substance abuse in the past, Cornell stated:
"It was a long period of coming to the realization that this way (sober) is better. Going through rehab, honestly, did help ... it got me away from just the daily drudgery of depression and either trying to not drink or do drugs or doing them and you know, they give you such a simple message that any idiot can get and it's just over and over, but the bottom line is really, and this is the part that is scary for everyone, the individual kinda has to want it ... not kinda, you have to want it and to not do that crap anymore or you will never stop and it will just kill you."
Please continue to pray for the his wife, children, fans and loved ones.
