The family of rock legend Chris Cornell bashed "inferences that Chris knowingly and intentionally" killed himself, suggesting on Friday that side effects from a prescribed anti-anxiety drug may have played a role. "Without the results of toxicology tests, we do not know what was going on with Chris - or if any substances contributed to his demise", Pasich said.

Cornell died Wednesday night, May 17 (or during the early hours of May 18), in Detroit just a few hours after Soundgarden's performance at the Fox Theatre.

Vicky Cornell, Cornell's wife, said that when she spoke to her husband after the Detroit show, he told her he may have taken "an extra Ativan or two". "A full report on the autopsy is not yet complete", said the pathologist. The singer, whose life had appeared to take an upward turn over the past decade as he went sober, was found dead at the MGM Grand Detroit hotel after his family contacted first responders, police said.

His representative, Brian Bumbery called the musician's death "sudden and unexpected" and said in a statement that the family would be "working closely with the medical examiner to determine the cause".

Anyone who has seen the photos knows them immediately: Black and white, blurred with motion, the light trailing past the bodies, all of which are sweaty, and in Chris Cornell's case, naked from the torso up. "He was my best friend", Karayiannis said in a statement.

Chris Cornell, a Seattle native, wrestled with heroin and other drugs as well as depression most of his life, once even calling a metal magazine to confirm a tour cancellation from a payphone at a rehab clinic.

Asked about his past addictions, Mr Cornell often remarked that drug problems were overlooked among non-famous people.

Cornell, who grew up in Seattle, said he started using drugs at age 13 and was kicked out of school at 15.

"Chris Cornell he's like 12 years younger than me, he's my friend and we'd go out together for dinner".

Vicky Cornell said her husband slurred his words when she spoke with him after the Detroit show. He also found success outside the band with his solo music and the band Temple of the Dog.

Chris Cornell, one of the most lauded and respected contemporary lead singers in rock music with his bands Soundgarden and Audioslave, hanged himself Wednesday in a Detroit hotel room, according to the city's medical examiner.

Cornell was a leader of the grunge movement with Seattle-based Soundgarden, with whom he gained critical and commercial acclaim.
