A sad story made headlines around the world last week after a famous lead singer was found dead in his home. According to reports, Keith Flint has passed away.
"Keith Flint, the frontman of pioneering British electronic group The Prodigy, has been found dead at his home aged 49, the band has confirmed. Flint's distinctive appearance, vocals, and dancing made him one of the most recognizable figures on the British electronic scene, with hits including 'Firestarter' and 'Breathe' propelling the group to commercial success throughout Europe and the United States," wrote CNN.
Flint's bandmates took to social media to share the news of his death.
"The news is true, I can't believe I'm saying this but our brother Keith took his own life over the weekend," Howlett wrote on the group's official Instagram profile. "I'm shell shocked, angry, confused and heartbroken," he added.
Keith was living in Essex, England at the time of his passing. Fans, close friends, and family members were shocked at the news. Many expressed complete disbelief and heartbreak through their touching posts on social media.
Now, the coroner has revealed the official cause of Keith's death. According to the report, Flint died by hanging. It's a truly tragic ending to a man who was at the top of his game in the music industry.
"A postmortem was carried out on Flint’s body last Thursday. The coroner’s officer, Lynsey Chaffe, said there were no suspicious circumstances surrounding Flint’s death. 'Police attended, all protocols were followed and his death was confirmed as not suspicious,'" according to Variety.
The Prodigy became the first dance group to headline the UK's illustrious Glastonbury Festival in 1997 and was set to play the festival again this year. They were still performing shows and creating new music even at this stage of their careers.
Those closest to Flint were extremely shocked by the news. Keith had even just taken part in a 5K Park Run days before his death. He spent time with fans and even clocked a new personal best time on the run. It truly shocked the world that he took his own life.
