He was found unresponsive in his home and the band’s official Instagram page confirmed the frontman took his own life.
“The news is true, I can’t believe I’m saying this but our brother Keith took his own life over the weekend. I’m shell shocked, f*ckin angry, confused and heart broken ….. r.i.p brother Liam,” said the Instagram post.
“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 [March 4],” an Essex Police spokesperson said in a statement. The statement continued, “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.”
