Cornell was found dead in his hotel room last night at the MGM Grand Detroit following a Soundgarden show at Detroit’s Fox Theater, according to local police. A family friend, responding to a request to check on Cornell by his wife, Vicky, found Cornell lying on the bathroom floor with a band around his neck. Cornell’s spokesperson had previously described his death as “sudden and unexpected.”

The full autopsy report, according to a statement released from the medical examiner, has not yet been completed.
