    Coroner spokesman Brian Elias says they are investigating Bennington's death as an apparent suicide but no additional details are available. 

    Billboard reported that the singer had struggled with addictions to drugs and alcohol at various points in his life. He spoke about those addictions in a 2009 interview with Noisecreep.

    Linkin Park is well known for hits like 2000’s “In the End” and 2003’s “Numb,” the latter of which led to a collaborative EP with Jay-Z called “Collision Course.”

    Bennington is survived by his wife, Talinda Ann Bentley, and six children.
