Chris Cornell to be Buried in Los Angeles This Week

"The Medical Examiner's Office has completed the autopsy on 52-year-old Chris Cornell, the Soundgarden musician who died last night in Detroit", the Medical Examiner's statement read to Us.

Chris Cornell's wife, Vicky, raised the alarm.

The Seattle rocker was found dead in his hotel bathroom at early Thursday.

A medical examiner officially ruled Chris' death a suicide however, his family have since disputed the ruling in two separate statements.

U2 honoured the memory of Chris Cornell at their California concert on Saturday by dedicating their addiction track Running To Stand Still to the tragic Soundgarden frontman.


With his powerful, almost four-octave vocal range, Cornell was one of the leading voices of the 1990s grunge movement with Soundgarden, which emerged as one of the biggest bands out of Seattle's emerging music scene, joining the likes of Nirvana, Pearl Jam and Alice in Chains. According to a source, at this time it is unknown whether or not the funeral will be open to Chris Cornell's legions of fans, or if it will remain a private event for close friends and family. "I think he was a little nervous about playing in Detroit, the music capital of the world, and he took a little too much of the Ativan".

Numerous bands remembered Cornell by performing his songs.

"Without the results of toxicology tests, we do not know what was going on with Chris - or if any substances contributed to his demise".

The screens then showed a video of the rocker performing a cover of John Lennon's iconic track Imagine, followed by a photo montage of Cornell, as his voice blared through the stadium.

If you or someone you know needs help, please call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK (8255).
