    Rock star Chris Cornell died after he hanged himself, medical officials have said.

    "The cause of death has been determined as hanging by suicide," Wayne County Medical Examiner's Office said in a statement after an initial examination.

    It added: "A full autopsy report has not yet been completed."



    Chris Cornell: Soundgarden star's death investigated as 'possible suicide'

    Chris Cornell's death is being investigated as a possible suicide, Detroit Police have told the BBC.

    The singer died at the age of 52 after a concert in Detroit on Wednesday evening, his representatives announced.

    In a statement, Cornell's representative Brian Bumbery said his death was "sudden and unexpected".

    It also said the family would be working closely with the medical examiner to determine the cause and asked for privacy.

    Cornell died shortly after playing a concert with Soundgarden in Detroit on Wednesday evening.

    A spokesperson for Detroit Police confirmed to the BBC that they received a call just after midnight (05:00 BST).

    "He was found on the bathroom floor, our medical unit were called and he was pronounced dead on scene," a spokesperson said.

    "A family friend went to go check on him and observed him on the bathroom floor. The body was transferred to the medical examiner's office and the cause of death will be determined."

    The show was part of a wider tour and the group had a number of live dates scheduled for later this month.

    Sir Elton John led the tributes, tweeting: "Shocked and saddened by the sudden death of @chriscornell. A great singer, songwriter and the loveliest man."

    Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page added: "RIP Chris Cornell. Incredibly talented, incredibly young, incredibly missed."

    BBC 6 Music's Matt Everitt said he was taken aback by Cornell's death.

    "This is a hell of a shock, he'd been gigging frequently despite having a life that was quite extreme, and he was certainly in extremely good health, performing concerts and seemingly pretty much at the top of his game," he said.

    Cornell was born on 20 July, 1964.

    As a solo artist, he released four studio albums - most recently 2015's Higher Truth.

    His biggest single in the UK was 2006's You Know My Name, which was the theme song to Casino Royale, which starred Daniel Craig.

    The track made him the first male American artist to write and perform the theme song for a James Bond movie.

    But he was perhaps most famous as the lead singer of Seattle band Soundgarden, which formed in 1984 and went on to release six studio albums.

    Last year, the band confirmed they were returning to the studio to record new material and a tour was announced for this year.

    On Wednesday evening, the Fox Theatre in Detroit tweeted pictures of the band while they were live on stage.

    Cornell himself tweeted about the show on Wednesday evening, writing: "Finally back to Rock City!"

    Soundgarden's most successful album in the UK was 1994's Superunknown, which reached number four in the chart.

    In 2001, he joined rock supergroup Audioslave, which consisted of Cornell on lead vocals, together with Rage Against The Machine members Tom Morello, Tim Commerford and Brad Wilk (drums).

    The group released three albums - all of which reached the top 20 in the UK - but disbanded in 2007.

    FUCK MAN!!!!!!!

    I was just listening to my favorite song by Soundgarden earlier tonight. It just so happened to be their heaviest (imo)

    As I got older I became more of a fan of em, slowly making Soundgarden one of my favorite bands.

    RIP Chris

    Damn, dead at 52? That's young as fuck. Never was a huge fan, but I had my phase during the early 90s where I listened to Badmotorfinger.

    RIP
