TMZ has obtained audio of the 911 call made by a driver on the morning that LINKIN PARK singer Chester Bennington was found dead at his Southern California home.
The police released the 911 call made by the driver, who was most likely there to pick up Chester for a scheduled photo shoot. Bennington‘s housekeeper could by heard crying and screaming in the background as the driver told the operator: “Hi there. I’m working. I’m a driver. And I just got to the location and his housekeeper came out and said that he, unfortunately, killed himself… I haven’t seen him. I’m sitting in my car. His housekeeper came out and said that she found him dead, unfortunately.”
He went on to explain: “I asked, I said, ‘Is he cold? Is he warm?’, and she said, ‘No, he’s dead, he’s been hanging,’ and she’s talking to his wife right now….
“It’s a home. [I’m in] Palos Verdes Estates. [He’s in his] mid-forties.”
Then the housekeeper’s screams of “Oh my God” can be heard, while a nurse asks if he’s been inside the property.
“No, not at all,” he concludes, before the call is ended.
