(hennemusic) The Los Angeles County coroner has confirmed that Linkin Park singer Chester Bennington died of suicide by hanging at his Palos Verdes Estates home on July 20.

The Los Angeles Times reports an employee discovered the 41-year-old's body Thursday morning hanging from a belt on a bedroom door inside his home in the 2800 block of Via Victoria, said Ed Winter, spokesman for the L.A. County medical examiner-coroner.

A half-empty bottle of alcohol was found in the room, Winter added, and a suicide note was not found. Winter said an autopsy was pending, and that toxicology tests were also likely to be carried out. Firefighters responded to a call about 9 a.m. regarding a cardiac arrest before arriving on scene. Read more here.
