Chester Bennington hogtied himself and jumped into his pool, but struggled to free himself. This attempt was hidden until now.
According to TMZ, Bennington got extremely drunk, hog-tied himself and threw himself into his swimming pool in a suicide attempt 9 months before he hanged himself. This details was something the L.A. County Coroner knew, but failed to mention in Bennington's autopsy report.
Apparently, Bennington's widow, Talinda, told the Coroner's investigator that Chester consumed a large quantity of alcohol, hog-tied himself and threw himself in the pool in November 2016, but had a change of heart and was able to break free from the restraint and climb to safety.
