Late Linkin Park and Stone Temple Pilots frontman Chester Bennington’s sister Tobi appeared to contemplate if he really died by suicide in a new Instagram post featuring a photo with her brother where she also mentions billionaire convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein, who reportedly died by suicide in federal custody over the weekend. A Rage Against The Machine member questioned if Epstein was murdered yesterday.
“Is it a coincidence that all these people died by ‘hanging them selves?’ I’m beginning to wonder just how deep this #Epstein debacle goes… How many more will ‘die by suicide’ before the authorities take this seriously??”
Linkin Park singer/guitarist Mike Shinoda wrote on the 2-year anniversary of Bennington’s death a few weeks ago, “I didn’t really want to post today, but I also thought it would be weird not to post. I don’t want the day Chester passed to be marked as an “event.” I’d rather celebrate his birthday, celebrate album anniversaries, celebrate the countless moments our wonderful LP family has had together. Today, just take care of yourself. ❤️✌🏽”
Bennington’s widow Talinda recently said she thought “[Chester] was in a good place” before he died by suicide two years ago. “We just thought he was OK,” she said simply. “I can’t emphasize [that] enough. If you knew Chester, you would know that he was in a good place, in such a good place.” Chester’s mother shared her final emotional photo with him a few months ago.
