Chris Cornell's death has been ruled a suicide by hanging, but his wife believes the anti-anxiety medication he was taking likely led him to kill himself.
A lawyer for Vicky Karayiannis and the Cornell family says "inferences that Chris knowingly and intentionally" committed suicide are premature and cannot be determined until a toxicology report confirms how much of the medication was in his system or if he had taken any other substances.
Cornell had a prescription for Ativan which has a wide range of potential side effects. His wife says she spoke to him immediately after the show and he was slurring his speech. She says he mentioned that he had taken "an extra Ativan or two."
He was found dead hours later on the floor of his hotel bathroom.
It's such a tragic loss. Our thoughts and prayers are with his loved ones.
