Cornell passed away on May 17, 2017. His death was ruled a suicide by hanging. He was 52 years old. At the time, his family alleged that he would never intentionally kill himself and suggested that his suicide was the result of side effects from his Ativan prescription.

"Many of us who know Chris well, noticed that he wasn't himself during his final hours and that something was very off," she said. "We have learned from this report that several substances were found in his system. After so many years of sobriety, this moment of terrible judgement seems to have completely impaired and altered his state of mind."

Vicky continued, "Something clearly went terribly wrong and my children and I are heartbroken and are devastated that this moment can never be taken back. We very much appreciate all of the love we have received during this extremely difficult time and are dedicated to helping others in preventing this type of tragedy."
