Chris Cornell was best known for fronting one of the biggest grunge bands of the 1990s, and Chester Bennington was the singer for one of the most successful bands of the 21th century – Linkin Park.
I haven’t found much interesting on the “suicide” of Bennington, but did on Cornell. I expect that I will find more information.
The police report on the “suicide” of Cornell and autopsy report is on the internet. Most interesting to me is that he was found with blood running from his mouth: https://www.scribd.com/document/3535916 ... from_embed
See excerpts from page 7.
PRO RECEIVED A CALL FROM VICTIM´S WIFE AT 12:15 AM ON 5/18/2017
WHO STATED SHE TALKED TO HER HUSBAND (VICTIM) AT 11:35 PM ON 5/17/2017 WHO STATED TO WIFE THAT HE WAS GROGGY AND JUST KEPT SAYING “I AM JUST TIRED” AND HUNG OP THE PHONE. VICTIM´S WIFE ASKED PRO TO ROOM AND CHECK ON VICTIM TO SEE IF HE IS ALLRIGHT BECAUSE HE DID NOT SOUND LIKE HE WAS OKAY. PRO WENT TO VICTIM´S ROOM AT 12:15 AM ON 5/18/2017
PRO KICKED IN DOOR WITH HIS FEET
LATCH HAD BEEN ENGAGED ON THIS DOOR (…) PRO KICKED IN BEDROOM DOOR AND FOUND VICTIM LAYING ON THE BATHROOM FLOOR WITH BLOOD RUNNING FROM HIS MOUTH AND A RED EXERCISE BAND AROUND VICTIM’S NECK. AT 12:56 AM, MGM MEDIC (…) STATED SHE CAME TO ROOM 1136 AND SHE STATED DOOR WAS OPEN AND SHE FOUND VICTIM LAYING ON BATHROOM FLOOR WITH RED EXERCISE BAND AROUND HIS NECK.
UNIT (…) ARRIVED AT HOTEL ROOM AT 1:00 AM ON 5/18/2017 AND OBSERVED VICTIM LAYING ON THE FLOOR WITH BLOOD RUNNING FROM HIS MOUTH.
See excerpts from Page 11.
Upon entry into the bedroom area, you immediately observe the decedent positioned on his back, wearing a torn grey t-shirt and black underwear short. His face is covered in blood spatter
Mr. Kirsten stated that during this time he was talking by telephone with his wife.
Mr. Kirsten stated that at approximately 12:30 AM, he received a telephone from Ms. Vicki Cornell, the wife of the decedent stating that she want Mr. Kirsten to go to the decedent’s room because he sounded incoherent earlier and that he now was not answering his phone or returning calls.
Upon gaining entry, he found the bedroom door locked also, notified security and requested assistance, to which they refused. Mr. Kirsten stated that he told them to send security and EMS, because he was going to trash the room.
Kirsten was on the phone with wife Vicky the whole time.
I would expect that bodyguard Martin Kirsten (PRO) would attempt to enter the hotel room of Cornell, before trying the extra set of keys, first by ringing the buzzer, knocking on the door and yelling for Cornell to open the door. This is missing in the description…
What´s also suspicious is that bodyguard Kirsten called hotel security before kicking in the front door of the hotel room, and then a second time before kicking in the bedroom door (and asking for security and EMS).
At not getting any reaction, after the front door was broken open, I would expect him to kick in the second door fast. But why did he call for Emergency Medical Service (EMS) before seeing a body?
According to the autopsy report Cornell had 9 fractured ribs, from a suicide by hanging: https://www.alternativenation.net/full- ... -released/
The anterior aspects of the right second through sixth and left second through fifth ribs were fractured.
The most suspicious is that blood was running from Cornell´s mouth, which I wouldn´t expect if he had hung himself…
The autopsy report doesn’t mention this blood…
The following site shows police photos of the death scene (after the corpse had been removed). Photo 8 shows the blood unblurred (why is it blurred in the other pictures?) on the bathroom floor and near the door entry: http://www.tmz.com/2017/07/11/chris-cor ... om-photos/
Concerning the blood there are 2 versions. “Conspiracy theorists” see the blood as the “smoking gun”: http://www.ibtimes.com/chris-cornells-b ... cy-2564701
According to the state media: “several medical examiners and other professionals say it's common for hanging victims to bleed from the mouth or nose from a buildup of blood and tension in the head.
According to Table 1 of the following literature review, bleeding from mouth and nose happens in only 1% of the suicide hangings, but in 100% of the ligature strangulations (murder by strangulation): http://medind.nic.in/jal/t13/i1/jalt13i1p63.pdf
When I searched for more information, I found the following, which sounds like a maximum of only a few drops of blood in a suicide by hanging: http://www.writing-world.com/mystery/suicide.shtml
If you can stomach it, here are pictures of victims of hanging, some of them have a little blood near their mouth (which coincides with a red face as a result of the build up of blood): http://1226608.sites.myregisteredsite.c ... ing-1.htmlHanging, whether done with rope, an electrical cord or a belt, always leaves an inverted V bruise, and is easy to tell from ligature strangulation (murder), which leaves a straight-line bruise. Hanging compresses the veins, but arterial blood flow continues, causing small bleeding sites on the lips, inside the mouth and on the eyelids. As with ligature strangulation, the face and neck are congested with blood and become dark red.
The webpage for the “Chris and Vicky Cornell foundation” that focused on helping depraved children (Foster Care, Poverty, and Child abuse) went black a couple of days before Cornell’s death.
Considering the objective of the foundation, it could be that he uncovered one of the many scandals involving children, and posted it on the website of his foundation.
See the “black” site on 12 May 2017 (5 days before Chris Cornell died): https://web.archive.org/web/20170512083 ... ation.org/
Here’s the archived page of 15 April 2017: https://web.archive.org/web/20170415141 ... ation.org/
It’s also interesting that in February it was announced that Chris Cornell, would start a tour with his old band Soundgarden on 28 April 2017.
He died 3 weeks after the start of the tour. Maybe he made too many critical remarks on international human rights violations?
Chris Cornell repeatedly tweeted about his participation in the movie “The promise” about the Armenian genocide to which he contributed the theme song. There are also a relatively large amount of tweets that are critical of the US government, and Donald Trump in particular: https://twitter.com/chriscornell
There is for example a Tweet of 21 April (he died 4 weeks later) about “The promise” that was retweeted by Bennington with a link to: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/why ... 26cfeae24b
Cornell also went to the premiere for “The promise” in London. After this premiere he went with his wife Vicky (of Greek origin) to Greece were he visited a refugee camp: http://www.keeptalkinggreece.com/2017/0 ... mp-athens/I have seen Republicans shout down refugees and journalists, and I have seen Democrats support a show called “The Young Turks” — named after the murderous masterminds of the Armenian Genocide.
It could also be that one of the stories he heard in Greece led to his discovery of some dark secret...
The Los Angeles County coroner decided very quickly that Chester Bennington died by hanging: https://www.usatoday.com/story/life/201 ... 499576001/
Brian Elias, chief of operations for the office of the medical examiner-coroner, said the 41-year-old rocker hanged himself from a bedroom door in his home near Los Angeles on Thursday.
Bennington was found dead at his home in Palos Verdes Estates in south Los Angeles County. Elias said the body was discovered shortly before 9 a.m. PT by a housekeeper who called 911. The Fire Department pronounced him dead at the scene.
The coroner's office said Thursday Bennington's death was being investigated as a possible suicide but few details were disclosed. The case is not yet officially closed, Elias said, but it is still being investigated as a suicide by hanging.
An autopsy has been scheduled for Friday, he said.
A half-empty bottle of alcohol was found in the room but there were no signs of illegal drugs or paraphernalia present, Elias added.
Why would the front man of one of the most successful bands of the 21th century commit suicide?
According to Motley Crue madman Nikki Six:
I’ve checked Bennington’s Twitter account (going back to December 2016), and this doesn’t look like the Tweets of a depressed (or paranoid) man; I find most messages boring: https://twitter.com/chesterbeI am in tears.Chester just told me how happy he was…..He was such a sweet and talented man……Ifeel so sad for his family,band mates and fans
There are a lot of messages on the latest (7th) Linkin Park album “One More Light”, most of it very positive...
What’s also interesting are Tweets in support of Al Gore, meeting Kevin Spacey (good friends with Bill Clinton, and paedophiles Jeffrey Epstein and Bryan Singer), and anti-Trump.
On 26 March:
Went to Crazyhorse with Kevin Spacey! My life just got cooler and stranger at the same
Here is Kevin Spacey (still in the closet) with Goldman Sachs, FOX gay activist Anthony Scaramucci, who was part of Donald Trump´s team, originally posted by Scaramucci on 18 May 2014.
There is an interesting connection between Linkin Park and Bill Clinton through Sustainable Recycling Solutions (SRS), which employs Haitians to collect recyclable goods and turn them into new products like clothing, toys, and furniture. Clinton gave SRS a grant last year and, and flew to Haiti to tour the plant: http://www.spin.com/2014/04/bill-clinto ... recycling/
More interesting background information on Chester Bennington...
In January 2008, Chester Bennington told in an interview with Kerrang, that he had been sexually abused by an older male “friend” for 6 years, starting when he was 7 or 8.
He also admitted doing lots of drugs, starting when his parents divorced, 11.
I STARTED getting molested when I was about seven or eight. It was by a friend who was a few years older than me. It escalated from a touchy, curious, ‘what does this thing do’ into full-on, crazy violations. I was getting beaten up and being forced to do things I didn’t want to do. It destroyed my self-confidence.
Like most people, I was too afraid to say anything. I didn’t want people to think I was gay or that I was lying. It was a horrible experience. The sexual assaults continued until I was 13.
By the end of 2004, Chester decided it was time for a change. He was in a marriage that wasn’t working, and drinking too much:I took everything. I got really, really bad. Until I was 16, I was doing a ton of LSD and a lot of drinking. Then, when we couldn’t find acid, we turned to speed because it was cheap and it worked really, really well. I got really bad, really quickly. On a normal day, my friends and I would go through an eight-ball. We were smoking it in bongs – I was doing bong-hits of meth. It was ridiculous. Then we’d smoke opium to come down, or we’d take pills, or I’d drink so much that I’d shit my pants. It was not pretty.
According to Chester, he sobered up, divorced, and remarried.I wasn’t leaving my house. I’d shack up in my closet in the dark and shake all day. I’d wake up and have a pint of Jack Daniels to calm down, then I’d pop a bunch of pills and go back in my closet and fucking freak out for the rest of the day. I was a mess. I was falling through windows, having seizures and going to hospital the whole time. It was fucking ridiculous. I was a total wreck.
Eventually I just gave in. I had to give up and ask for help. If I had tried to do it on my own, I wouldn’t have made it. But everybody came to my rescue.
That should have been a happy end: http://www.tom-bryant.com/linkin-park-k ... ryant.html
A possible motive for killing Bennington is that he found out that Chris Cornell was murdered.
There are lots of bizarre stories on these murders (that’s what I believe they are).
The most bizarre is that Chester Bennington was killed by John Podesta, who in reality was his father.
There are claims that police officers confirmed that Cornell and Bennington were murdered because they were about to expose a child abuse ring. I haven’t found any reliable source to back this up.
There is also a rumour that Chris Cornell had a visible head wound at his last concert.
Here is the last time Chris Cornell sang Soundgarden’s biggest hit “Black hole sun” live in concert in Detroit (I don’t see any head wound): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2wBJksAFkG0
The Soundgarden concert ended about 11:15 PM.
His final moments with the audience don’t sound like somebody that is about to kill himself in an hour: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q2nCgRLmHCs
I love you guys up there on the top shelf, but you got to f–king stand up and show me something. I have bragged about Detroit crowds for 30 years, so stand the f–k up and make some noise.
