Cornell’s widow awaiting toxicology report
Vicky Cornell says in a statement Thursday that she is still awaiting the toxicology reports she hopes will clarify the circumstances around her late husband’s apparent suicide.
“We still have several unanswered questions about what led to his death,” she said. “We believe the toxicology report will answer these questions.”
Cornell family attorney Kirk Pasich says Detroit legal officials denied his request for police and toxicology reports because the investigation remains open.
Chris Cornell was pronounced dead May 18 when he was found unresponsive in a Detroit hotel room hours after performing a concert with Soundgarden. Coroner’s officials said preliminary autopsy results show the singer hanged himself, but Cornell’s family disputes the findings and claims he may have taken more of an anti-anxiety drug than he was prescribed.
