Chris Cornell's Suspicious Death Leaves Fans Questioning

News reports state the following but i am telling you right now the shit does not add up!

A medical examiner has determined that SOUNDGARDEN singer Chris Cornell killed himself.

The Wayne County Medical Examiner's Office said that Cornell died as a result of a "suicide by hanging."

The Detroit Free Press and the Detroit News both reported that Cornell was found dead in a hotel room at the MGM Grand Detroit hotel with "a band around his neck." However, these reports have not yet been corroborated by official police sources.

A full autopsy report, including toxicology results, has not yet been completed.

Cornell performed a concert with SOUNDGARDEN at the Fox Theatre on Wednesday night (May 17) and reportedly appeared to be in good spirits to those in attendance and even talked about "the next place we play" during the show.

SOUNDGARDEN spokesperson Brian Bumbery called the death "sudden and unexpected" and said Cornell's wife and family were shocked by it. In a statement, he said the family would be working closely with the medical examiner to determine the cause and asked for privacy.

Sources who talked with Cornell's wife, Vicky Karayiannis, Thursday morning told TMZ that she spoke with her husband during soundcheck before he took the stage with SOUNDGARDEN in Detroit and after Wednesday night's show. Vicky was reportedly adamant that Chris was "not in any way, shape or form in a suicidal state. She doubled down and said there were no signs he was at all depressed," according to the site.

During their 13-year marriage, Cornell and Karayiannis became parents to two children — Toni, 12, and Christopher, 11. Cornell was also father to daughter Lillian Jean, 16, from his first marriage to former SOUNDGARDEN manager Susan Silver.

In addition to releasing four solo albums, Cornell fronted AUDIOSLAVE which he formed with RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE members Tim Commerford, Tom Morello and Brad Wilk. The supergroup released three studio albums before disbanding in 2007.

SOUNDGARDEN was set to headline Rock On The Range on Friday, May 19 in Columbus, Ohio. "We are devastated to hear about the sudden passing of Chris Cornell last night," the festival's organizers said in a statement. "He was a true hero to music. The voice of a generation. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family, friends and the entire music community. The voice of an angel, now watching down on us as we celebrate and honor him all weekend long."

The Beast "Vicky is reportedly adamant that Chris was "not in any way, shape or form in a suicidal state. She doubled down and said there were no signs he was at all depressed," according to the site.

Cornell's wife called a family friend Wednesday night and asked him to check on the singer's well-being. When the friend forced opened the hotel room door, he found the SOUNGARDEN frontman on the bathroom floor."

If he showed no signs of depression why send someone to check on him and why would they break down the door? What if he was just tired and sleeping?

The Beast ok now that the coroners report shows signs of ativan, new statements are released ? .....This is getting stranger by the day
The family of Chris Cornell have questioned the conclusion by the Wayne County Medical Examiner’s Office that the singer died by suicide.

Cornell was found dead in his Detroit hotel room on Wednesday night, with the coroner’s office ruling his death as “suicide by hanging.”

In a joint letter from the Cornell family lawyer Kirk Pasich and Cornell’s widow Vicky (via Billboard), they say they are “disturbed at inferences that Chris knowingly and intentionally took his life” as the toxicology results are not yet known.

Cornell's family report that the Soundgarden frontman had a prescription for Ativan and may have taken a higher dosage than prescribed which could have affected his actions.

Ativan is used to treat anxiety disorders and side effects can include extreme drowsiness, confusion, muscle weakness and loss of balance or coordination.

Vicky Cornell says: “Chris’s death is a loss that escapes words and has created an emptiness in my heart that will never be filled. As everyone who knew him commented, Chris was a devoted father and husband.

“When we spoke after the show, I noticed he was slurring his words – he was different. When he told me he may have taken an extra Ativan or two, I contacted security and asked that they check on him.”

Vicky says that Cornell flew home to spend time with his family over the Mother’s Day weekend before reuniting with his Soundgarden bandmates on Wednesday afternoon.

She adds: “What happened is inexplicable and I am hopeful that further medical reports will provide additional details. I know that he loved our children and he would not hurt them by intentionally taking his own life.

“The outpouring of love and support from his fans, friends and family means so much more to us than anyone can know. Thank you for that, and for understanding how difficult this is for us.”
