‘He Is Now Pain Free’: Linkin Park Singer’s Wife Opens Up About His Death

LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com/AP) — The wife of late Linkin Park singer Chester Bennington says she’s feeling the love from the rocker’s fans but she’s also feeling the loss.

Talinda Bennington said in a statement late Thursday she wants “to let [the] community and the fans worldwide know that we feel your love. We feel your loss as well.”

Chester Bennington hanged himself from a bedroom door in his home near Los Angeles last week. His death was ruled a suicide.

“He was a bright, loving soul with an angel’s voice. And now he is pain free singing his songs in all of our hearts,” she wrote.

Bennington was found dead on what would have been the 53rd birthday of Soundgarden frontman Chris Cornell, who hanged himself in May. The two were friends.

Linkin Park canceled the band’s “One More Light” North American Tour after Bennington’s death.
