“I just got to the location and his housekeeper came out and said he killed himself … his housekeeper came out and said she found him dead. I asked, ‘Is he cold? Is he warm?’ She said, ‘No, he’s dead, he’s been hanging.’ She’s talking to his wife right now.”

After the ordeal, Linkin Park cancelled their North American tour and said in a heartfelt tribute, “Our love for making and performing music is inextinguishable. While we don’t know what path our future may take, we know that each of our lives was made better by you. Thank you for that gift. We love you, and miss you so much.

Until we see you again.”
