 Millions of fans are mourning the death of Chris Cornell. When the news of his death broke into media 2 days ago, nobody really knew the exact cause of death. It has now been found out that Chris Cornell killed himself using basic exercise equipment.

The lead vocalist for two immensely popular bands Soundgarden and Audioslave reportedly killed himself in a hotel room. He used a red elastic exercise band that was attached to his hotel bathroom door’s karabiner, it can withstand a huge amount of weight. Cornell reportedly used the Karabiner at the top of the door frame to jam the door shut.

Chris Cornel was a happily married man with two kids

A successful musician, singer and one with a happy family and millions of fans around the globe, was he still depressed? Why did he take his life? According to Cornell’s family, he had no intentions to commit suicide just a few hours ago, they think he could have been under the influence of Ativan.

Many celebrities and fans are sharing their grief via Twitter:


As per police reports acquired by The Detroit News, shortly before committing suicide Chris was on the phone with his wife. His wife told police that he sounded ‘’groggy’’ and said ‘’ I am just tired,’’ before hanging up. Vicky also reported said, ''When he told me he may have taken an extra Ativan or two, I contacted security and asked that they check on him.''

The call alarmed Cornell’s wife Vicky and she called the hotel. When Chris’ security guard kicked down two doors he found Chris in the bathroom with blood running from his mouth.

It is a very sad demise of a music legend. Hope his family can find peace in this difficult situation. If there’s any more development on the matter, we’ll update you!
