As the world mourns the death of Linkin Park’s singer Chester Bennington, the circumstances surrounding his death are shrouded in suspicion.
His death was ruled as a suicide by police after he was found hanging at his home in Palos Verdes near LA on Thursday morning, despite the lack of a toxicology report or an official Los Angeles County coroner’s verdict.
Mr. Bennington’s death strikes more than a passing resemblance to the death of his close friend Chris Cornell who shocked the world when he tragically passed on May 17th of this year.
Both men were found hanging on the back of the door and both deaths were prematurely ruled as a suicide by police. Bennington was also found dead on, what would have been, Chris Cornell’s 53rd birthday.
Families and friends of both men say they were shocked by the news and that they were “in a good place”, yet the mainstream media paints a very different picture of how they were battling with addiction and depression and were “suicidal”.
The two singers had something much more troubling in common: Pedophilia. Bennington had also previously spoken out about being sexually abused as a seven-year-old, saying he had been molested by an older male friend.”
If I think back to when I was really young, to when I was being molested, to when all these horrible things were going on around me, I shudder,” he said in one interview.
He attributed his abuse to his alcohol and drug addiction he struggled with in later life, but after marrying his second wife in 2007 he said he his life turned around for the better and he never looked back.
In a 2011 interview, he said he was sober. “I don’t drink. I choose to be sober now. I have drunk over the last six years, but I just don’t want to be that person anymore.”
According to TMD, Bennington’s close friend and his wife had set up the Chris and Vicky Cornell Foundation for neglected children and also worked with a number of charities that worked with children rescued from child trafficking networks.
During his charitable work, Mr. Cornell had discovered a “black book” of names for an Elite pedophile ring that was part of a global child abuse network.
Sources close to Cornell revealed that he was planning on going public with the names shortly before he was found dead.
Friends and family of Chester Bennington said they were in absolute “shock” over the rock star’s apparent suicide and stressed that they believed he “was in a good place in his life”.
According to close friends of Mr. Bennington, Cornell had shared “troubling” information with him shortly before his death. After news of his shock death emerged, friends said that while they never suspected he’d kill himself, Bennington was “never the same” after the death of his close friend Chris Cornell.”
Chester and Chris were so close, and he was never the same after Chris’s death,” the friend told Radar. “He knew something about [his death] that really troubled him”
The friend of Bennington’s also noted that Cornell’s passing had deeply affected Bennington, but that he was far from suicidal and was looking for a way to “shine a light” on the truth behind his friend’s death.”
Everyone thought that he had it licked. He seemed to be at a good place in his life. It is just so tragic and there are no words,” the friend told Radar.
