According to the BBC, the Prodigy singer Keith Flint died as a result of hanging. Flint was found dead at his home in Essex on March 4th, just weeks before the group’s scheduled U.S tour. The cause of death was revealed via an Inquest heard. A toxicology report was ordered but senior coroner Caroline Beasley-Murray adjourned the inquest until July 23rd for a full hearing. This means, it could take quite some time before the toxicology results arrive. The BBC reported, Coroner’s officer Lynsey Chaffe told the hearing in Chelmsford the following:
“Police attended, all protocols were followed and his death was confirmed as not suspicious.”
The Prodigy have decided to cancel all immediate tour dates that included a number of festivals such as Sonic Temple, Chicago Open Air, Welcome To Rockville, and Epicenter.
With the vast amount of suicides that’s been happening over the last few years including Chester Bennington, Chris Cornell, and Jill Janus, it’s important to know that mental illness and depression should never be taken lightly. Take a moment to help and support each other and know it’s OK to not be OK. For those who are in need of immediate help, the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline is one phone call away 1-800-273-8255.
