Chester Bennington's house

This is the house where Chester Bennington committed suicide.

It is located at 2842 Vía Victoria in Palos Verdes Estates, California.

On the morning of July 20th, 2017, Bennington hanged himself from a door in his bedroom.

The singer, who was the lead vocalist of the nu-metal band Linkin Park, had struggled with alcoholism and depression for years. He also had a history of suicidal ideation.

In November 2016, he reportedly got drunk and attempted suicide by tying himself up and jumping into his swimming pool. However, he changed his mind after he broke free from his restraints.

On another occasion, his wife called the police after he grabbed a shotgun and left the family home.

On the night of July 19th, 2017, the 41-year-old returned home early from a family vacation in Arizona. He was scheduled to take part in a photo shoot for Linkin Park the following morning, as the band was just one week away from embarking on a new tour of North America.

Although Bennington had been very open about his mental health problems, his death still caught most people by surprise.

That year, he had managed to stay sober for six months. Furthermore, his career was going well, as Linkin Park's latest album had recently topped the charts.

His family and bandmates said that he seemed pretty positive.

Sadly, it seems as though his suicidal thoughts crept back in whenever he fell off the wagon.

In the autopsy report, it was noted that Bennington had a small amount of alcohol in his system and that there was a half-empty glass of beer in the bedroom.

The father-of-six was found dead by his maid at around 9 a.m.

He did not leave a suicide note.

It should be noted that this is not the swimming pool where Bennington attempted suicide. That incident occurred in November 2016, which was eight months before he moved to Vía Victoria.



Bennington reportedly used a belt to hang himself from the door that separated his master bedroom from an adjoining bathroom.
