According to TMZ the police have already searched the room and collected evidence. However, the hotel has cancelled its availability and has no plans to remove that ban anytime soon.

I know that he loved our children and he would not hurt them by intentionally taking his own life,” Cornell’s wife, Vicky, said in a statement. She added that her husband had been taking Ativan, a drug that’s normally used for treating insomnia and anxiety. The drug has some serious side effects including depression. She added that when she spoke to the Soungarden and Audioslave lead singer on the day he died, he seemed disoriented. She said that she “noticed he was slurring his words, he was different… He told me he may have taken an extra Ativan or two.” The family’s lawyer, Kirk Paskch, maintains that his family is still doubtful that the singer knowingly took his own life. “Without the results of toxicology tests, we do not know what was going on with Chris or if any substances contributed to his demise. Chris, a recovering addict, had a prescription for Ativan and may have taken more Ativan than recommended dosages,” Pasich said. “The family believes that if Chris took his life, he did not know what he was doing and that drugs or other substances may have affected his actions.” The drug tied to Chris Cornell’s tragic death, explained — UPROXX (@UPROXX) May 20, 2017 Chris Cornell was a singer/songwriter who emerged out of the same Seattle grunge scene that produced Nirvana.
