Chris (Boyle) Cornell was found dead in his hotel room on May 18, 2017 at age 52, shortly after his sold out gig with Soundgarden in Detroit’s Fox Theatre. Faster than you can say Mississippi, Detroit authorities ruled Chris’s death was a suicide by hanging.
Vicky Cornell is not buying the suicide story. Thousands fans and friends are not buying it either. She is rightfully fighting against the examiner’s suicide ruling. There's a whole lot more to this story that has not seen the light of day.
Nobody ever mentions that Chris was being stalked and getting death threats. This has been going on for years. Imagine a society that subjects people to conditions that make them terribly unhappy, and then gives them the drugs to take away the unhappiness.
They failed to tell us that many ‘FDA approved’ meds often drive people to take that one last step beyond out of the blue. A family in France successfully sued a drug company because daddy happily gave away the farm in casinos, while undergoing treatment.
Chris Cornell and family were back in Greece early April, 2017. He loved Greece, and the Greek people. They loved him back. Chris converted to Greek Orthodoxy to marry his wife Vicky Karayiannis. I saw the Mother’s day card he tweeted her. There’s no way Chris had any intention of leaving. None.
The couple have two lovely children, and Chris has a child from his previous marriage. They were traveling internationally to promote the film ‘Promise’, and give financial aid to children’s charities via their Chris and Vicky Cornell Foundation, its web page is now painted black.
