Rock singer Chris Cornell, who gained fame as the frontman of Soundgarden and Audioslave, has died at the age of 52, according to his representative.
His representative, Brian Bumbery released a simple statement to the Associated Press confirming that Cornell died suddenly and unexpectedly on Wednesday night in Detroit.
His family has asked for privacy and said they would be working with a medical examiner to determine the cause of Cornell's death.
Police spokesman Michael Woody told The Associated Press on Thursday morning that he can't provide details on what led investigators to make that determination, but noted there were "basic things observed at the scene".
Detroit's WDIV reports that sources say suicide is suspected and that Cornell was reportedly found in the bathroom with "something around his neck".
