Today is a sad day for music as the lead singer of the wildly successful band Linkin Park was found dead this morning. The singer committed suicide by hanging, according to reports.

The married father of 6 was home alone at the time of the suicide, and was found by an employee just before 9 am this morning. 

Bennington was said to have battled depression, alcohol and drug abuse, stemming from a childhood that was marred by trauma and abuse from a male family member.
