Chester Bennington's house.
Place of Interest in Palos Verdes Estates, California, United States.
This is the house where Chester Bennington committed suicide.
It is situated at 2842 Vía Victoria in the Palos Verdes Estates neighborhood of Los Angeles, 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 of 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 managed to break free from his restraints.
On another occasion, his wife had to call 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. The next morning, he was supposed to take part in a photo shoot for Linkin Park, as the band was just one week away from starting a new tour of North America.
Although Bennington had been very open about his mental health problems, his death still caught most people off-guard.
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.
According to his family and bandmates, 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 Chester 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 roughly before 9 a.m.
He did not leave a suicide note.
