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:

Understandably, Soundgarden will no longer be headlining this weekend's Rock On The Range music festival Friday night in Columbus, Ohio.

Instead, there will be a special tribute to the band's lead singer, the late Chris Cornell.

While no exact plans have been announced, this is an especially quick turnaround considering the 52-year-old singer was tragically found dead in his Detroit hotel room early Thursday morning.

"His voice and lyrics came from a deep and spiritual place and their power will be felt forever."

Meanwhile, concertgoers have been evacuated from the venue and told to return to their vehicles due to severe weather, according to the event's Facebook page:

More details surrounding Chris Cornell's untimely death continue to come in.

News of the Soundgarden artist's suicide has come as a huge surprise to many including his family, so what exactly happened following the 52-year-old's concert in Detroit on Wednesday night?

According to a police report obtained by The Detroit News, the rock star returned to his hotel room at the MGM Grand Hotel after his show ended around 11:30 p.m. He was escorted by his bodyguard, Martin Kirsten, who helped him fix a computer problem and gave Cornell two Ativan pills, "which victim takes for anxiety."

Shortly after, Chris spoke with his wife Vicky on the phone, during which conversation he sounded "groggy" and abruptly ended the call saying, "I'm just tired."

What a tragedy.

It has now been revealed that Chris Cornell took his own life using a red elastic exercise band attached to a carabiner (often used for mountain climbing) to the top of his hotel bathroom door, according to TMZ.

The outlet reports the legendary artist jammed the door shut with the clip at the top, which was so tight it left an indentation in the frame.

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.
