The discovery of Linkin Park frontman Chester Bennington’s hanging body left his housekeeper in sobbing hysterics, according to 911 audio released Monday by police.
A driver slated for a pick up at Bennington’s Palos Verdes Estates home near Los Angeles the morning of July 20 found the woman wailing outside and called authorities.
“I just go to the location and this housekeeper came out and said he killed himself,” the man told a 911 operator, according to audio obtained by the Associated Press and TMZ.
The housekeeper and driver were not immediately identified and it was unclear who dispatched him to Bennington’s home.
