The body of Soundgarden frontman Chris Cornell, who died in Detroit early Thursday, will be flown to California Sunday and a private funeral will be held on Friday, May 26, his attorney, Kirk Pasich, confirmed to Variety on Sunday.

The singer will be interred at Hollywood Forever Cemetery. Although the Friday service is private, his attorney said that public memorials will be announced “when that’s been decided,” Pasich said.

While Cornell’s death was ruled a suicide by hanging, his family on Thursday questioned the coroner’s report that the singer intentionally took his own life, noting that he had a prescription for Ativan and may have taken a higher dosage that impaired his judgement.

“Without the results of toxicology tests, we do not know what was going on with Chris—or if any substances contributed to his demise,” the family said in a statement.
