According to a new TMZ report, famous singer Chris Cornell might have used a series of drugs before his suicide a week ago. The star hanged himself in his hotel room and his body was discovered by his bodyguard. Initially it had been revealed that Chris took Ativan before he committed suicide, but now TMZ reported that the star had some fresh marks on his arm, which could indicate that he might have been under the influence of other drugs, as well.
TMZ cited some sources claiming that the tracks on Chris’ arms were “obvious.” And considering that the singer had a history of using drugs, there is no wonder that such claims emerged. However, some toxicology tests are being made on the star’s body, so it is yet to see if drugs will be found in his system.
An important aspect to mention is that Ted Keedick, Chris’ tour manager previously said that the star seemed “high” during the concert he held the day before his death. The singer’s wife claimed that Chris took “an extra Ativan or two” before he was found dead in his room. She said that he seemed sad when she talked to him on the phone, and she suspected something might be wrong this is why she asked Chris’ bodyguard to check on him.
Vicky Cornell has opened up in a letter to her late husband, saying that he was the best father and husband. “You had always said I saved you, that you wouldn’t be alive if it were not for me. My heart gleamed to see you happy, living and motivated. Excited for life. Doing everything you could to give back. We had the time of our lives in the last decade and I’m sorry, my sweet love, that I did not see what happened to you that night,” the letter said.
Vicky also said that she was sorry Chris was alone. The letter went on to add that Vicky will “think of you every minute of every day and I will fight for you. You were right when you said we are soulmates. It has been said that paths that have crossed will cross again, and I know that you will come find me, and I will be here waiting.”
