THE PRODIGY vocalist Keith Flint was found dead at his home in Dunmow, Essex, on Monday morning. He was 49.
An Essex police spokesman confirmed that a 49-year-old man had died. “We were called to concerns for the welfare of a man at an address in Brook Hill, North End, just after 8.10am on Monday,” he said.
“We attended and, sadly, a 49-year-old man was pronounced dead at the scene. His next of kin have been informed. The death is not being treated as suspicious and a file will be prepared for the coroner.”
Flint had recently returned to the U.K. from a tour of Australia and was due to start a U.S. tour in May.
Flint performed vocals on both of THE PRODIGY‘s number one singles – “Firestarter” and “Breathe” – which were released in 1996.
