A representative for the Detroit Police tells Variety that the death of Soundgarden singer Chris Cornell is being investigated as a suicide, although he emphasized that it is too early to make a definitive conclusion.
“At 12 a.m. [local time], we received a 911 call from the MGM Grand Casino Hotel,” Detroit Police director of media relations told Variety. “It appears as though a family friend was checking up on Cornell at his wife’s request. He went to hotel and discovered him unresponsive on the bathroom floor. Police made the location with EMS, and he was pronounced dead at the scene."
