According to the coroner's office, Bennington was found hanging at his residence by an employee in the upstairs area of the home.
"We are incredibly saddened to hear about the passing of Chester Bennington", tour promoters Live Nation said in a statement. TMZ reported that the star was found dead at the property in Palos Verdes Estates on Thursday morning. He was reportedly disturbed after the sudden demise of his close friend Chris Cornell in May this year. "They open up their loving arms to Chester's family and share in the sorrow with all those who loved him".
Christopher Rogers and investigator Nani Cholakians are both named on the report, which also listed no other significant causes regarding Bennington's death and that the case is closed. That was evident one Christmas, when Bennington thumbed his nose at California's sunny December weather to give his children a white Christmas, the neighbor wrote.
Bennington's death Thursday led to an outpouring of emotion from fans and celebrities on social media. "Your voice was joy and pain, anger and forgiveness, love and heartache all wrapped up into one", he said in the tribute posted by Cornell's family on Facebook.
Chester Bennington had been vocal about his battle against alcohol and drug abuse.
The singer said in interviews that he eventually got counseling and help in 2006 and stopped drinking.
"Chester Bennington was an artist of extraordinary talent and charisma, and a human being with a huge heart and a caring soul".
He tweeted shortly after the news of Chester's death was announced: "Shocked and heartbroken, but it's true".
