In 2017, the Linkin Park frontman took his own life by hanging. Authorities who launched an investigation into his death found a prescription for generic Ambien with one pill divided in half.

Following his death, the coroner's office conducted an autopsy. The report eventually came out and said, "autopsy findings are characteristic of suicidal hanging. There was a history of suicidal ideation."
His wife, Talinda, revealed that the singer attempted suicide multiple times including one instance in 2006. During that time, he left the house with a gun.
