Just hours after it was confirmed that Linkin Park frontman Chester Bennington killed himself, his wife's Twitter account was hacked. He was 41. Coroner spokesman Brian Elias says they are investigating Benningtons death as an apparent suicide but no additional details are available. "When life gets hard, Just Linkin Park" was a common quote many young adults use to escape out of the harsh realities of life, with the band.

Before his untimely passing, Bennington starred as the talismanic leader of the alternative rockband that touched and influenced a lot of people in the 2000s.
