Yesterday morning, we were all shocked to hear the news about the death of Chris Cornell. Upon further investigation, Cornell’s death — which occurred right after a show in Detroit with his band Soundgarden — was ruled to be a suicide. While it seems early, Cornell’s wife, Vicky Karayiannis Cornell, has already released a statement regarding the unfortunate situation.
“Chris’s death is a loss that escapes words and has created an emptiness in my heart that will never be filled,” Vicky said in a statement. “As everyone who knew him commented, Chris was a devoted father and husband. He was my best friend. His world revolved around his family first and of course, his music, second.”
