Linkin Park frontman Chester Bennington was found dead in his California home Thursday morning as a result of what coroners are ruling a suicide, CNN reports.
"Shocked and heartbroken, but it's true," he wrote, confirming Bennington's death. "An official statement will come out as soon as we have one."
