Other musicians such as Stormzy, Rihanna and Pink have expressed their sorrow over the singer’s death and urged people to get help if needed.

TMZ indicated that the house has five bedrooms and four bathrooms which has led to the belief that he was ensuring his family would be secure before passing away.

It has also been reported that neighbours publicised that Bennington had moved into the two-story house alongside his family prior to his death.

Property records have determined this to be true as the home was sold on the 26th of May.

Following the singer’s death, his band mates in Linkin Park expressed their heartache on social media and set up their own suicide-prevention website.

It is heartbreaking to know that someone who was so creative and inspiring ended their life because they didn’t see a way out.
