Days after Chester Bennington's shocking suicide, audio from the 911 call has been released.

In the audio, obtained by “Extra,” a driver called 911 after Bennington’s housekeeper found the Linkin Park singer hanging in his bedroom at his Palos Verdes Estates, California, home. The driver tells the operator, "I just got to the location and his housekeeper came out and said he unfortunately killed himself... he hung himself.”

While the driver speaks to the operator, the housekeeper can be heard wailing in the background. He reveals, “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.”

After the driver’s call was transferred, the fire department advised “everyone to wait outside.” The driver had been scheduled to take Bennington to a photo shoot in Hollywood.

TMZ was the first to obtain the audio. The site reports that Bennington bought the home in June, closing on it a week after his close friend Chris Cornell committed suicide.

Close sources told TMZ that his “sudden” decision to kill himself was probably “fueled by his grief.”
