Chris Cornell Reportedly Had Fresh Track Marks In His Arm When He Died

Wow, this is pretty shocking to hear.

It was one thing to hear an engineer say Chris Cornell seemed "fucked up" during his final performance; there are lots of explanations for that.

But this latest evidence could only mean the Soundgarden frontman had relapsed in his long battle with substance abuse.

Sources connected to the investigation have now told TMZ they saw fresh track marks on the body. The marks, which indicate recent injections, were apparently "obvious."

Chris had battled addiction since first getting hooked on heroin at only 13 years old.

So sad to hear he may have lost the fight.

We'll obviously know for sure once toxicology reports come out in the full autopsy.

Now, the 46-year-old tells People his behavior was caused by a prescription pill relapse while filming the MTV show:

"I had a drug relapse this year for the first time with prescription pills. I fell back into my addiction for about two months around December. I was taking a good amount of pills and I was killing the pain. Before I knew it I was back in the cycle again and completely off my program. I was still convincing myself that it wasn't as bad as it used to be but it was."

Baier was obviously upset after seeing the footage from the meltdown, knowing that he was "blacked out" during the time of the incident:

How un-COO-th!

Carrier pigeons might seem obsolete to most, but this archaic method of transportation is still useful to some people. Specifically, drug dealers!

According to Al Arabyia, Kuwaiti customs caught a homing pigeon with 178 tiny pills strapped to its back.

The department tracked the pigeon on its way back from Iraq and caught the bird above a building near the customs' offices.

This wouldn't be the first time messenger pigeons served as tiny, airborne drug mules, but it's the first we've seen of the ADORABLE backpack the little guy used to hide his stash.

Srsly, that trendy nap-sack probably has all the other pigeons like:

No word on if the pigeon has entered a plea or will be seeking an attorney.

Chris Cornell's passing still leaves some questions up in the air.

In the wake of his death, the Soundgarden frontman's longtime house engineer Ted Keedick tells TMZ the singer seemed "out of character" during his Detroit performance — hours before he committed suicide.

In fact, Ted says Chris, who had a past of drug use, seemed "high" and "fucked up" during the show.

Fans Call Out Doctors & Drug Companies After Chris Cornell's Wife Says Suicide May Have Been Caused By Prescription Ativan

| Filed under: DrugsR.I.P.Sad SadHealthViral: News

Chris Cornell's suicide is just so hard to understand. And to his widow Vicky it's "inexplicable."

In a statement early on Friday, she specifically mentioned her husband telling her he had taken "an extra Ativan or two" and that he was "slurring his words."

The Cornells' attorney Kirk Pasich concurred, saying the family was "disturbed at inferences that Chris knowingly and intentionally took his life."

The family is apparently looking to blame the prescription medication and are hoping the full autopsy results support their case that Chris' suicide was not his own idea.

It may sound bizarre for a drug used to treat anxiety, but one of the listed side effects of Ativan, the brand name of lorazepam, is suicidal ideation and suicide attempts.

Many on Twitter following the story were quick to support Vicky's position, including fans, doctors, and recovering addicts:

So. Much. Drama!

It's Robin Thicke and Brennan Thicke vs. Tanya Callau!

In case you haven't been keeping up, two of Alan Thicke's sons are going up against the late actor's widow over his large estate. In fact, they even filed legal docs claiming she was threatening to go to tabloids and create bad press.

The latest development? Tanya claims the singer and his brother are putting up such a fight because she won't let them have a pot farm on their dad's Santa Barbara ranch!!

Wow!

According to TMZ, her lawyer Adam Streisand says Robin and Brennan's claims about tabloid threats are fake, AND adds his client has no issue with Alan's prenup. Tanya gets 25% of the ranch, along with a trust which affords her to live her life out on the property.

Additionally, the widow feels Alan's sons are dishonoring the late star with this pot farm.

Shots fired!

We can only imagine how the two will respond to her, especially as they've painted her to be a gold digger.

Chris Cornell's Family Struggles To Believe He Would Take His Own Life — Suggests 'Drugs Or Other Substances May Have Affected His Actions'

| Filed under: DrugsR.I.P.Sad SadMental HealthDepression

Chris Cornell

We still can't believe we lost Chris Cornell so unexpectedly this week.

As we reported, the Soundgarden frontman was found in his hotel room after a gig in Detroit on Wednesday night, with a band of some kind around his neck. His death was ruled suicide by hanging.

In response, the Cornell family's attorney Kirk Pasich says the 52-year-old's loved ones are "disturbed" at speculation the musician would intentionally take his own life — and in a statement from Cornell's wife Vicky, Chris admitted to taking "an extra Ativan or two" before he was found dead.
