The Los Angeles County coroner has confirmed the death of the star – with TMZ reporting he was found dead at a private residence in Palo Verdes Estates, Los Angeles.
His body was discovered this morning just before 9 am.
It is believed the singer hanged himself and was found by an employee.
The singer is survived by his wife of twelve years, Talinda Ann Bennington (nee Bentley), and six children – Jamie, 21, Isaiah, 19, Draven, 15, Tyler Lee, 11, and Lily and Lila, 7.
They are not thought to have been at the house when the incident took place, and Chester was alone.
He was previously married to Samantha Marie Olit from 1996 – 2005.
Chester, whose band Linkin Park spawned rock songs including Numb and Breaking the Habit, often focused his lyrics on personal struggle, depression, and addiction.
The star was reportedly found in a private residence in Palo Verdes Estates in Los Angeles.
Mike Shinoda, who also provides vocals for the band, confirmed the news on Twitter and wrote: “Shocked and heartbroken, but it’s true. An official statement will come out as soon as we have one.”
One of the band’s latest singles, Heavy, released four months ago, focused on the topic of depression.
