He was arkancided by the Cabal, getting to deep in investigating child trafficking world wide. His mother was friends with Clinton campaign manager John Podesta and if you look at side by side photos of Podesta and Chester they look exactly alike other than age. I’m willing to bet Podesta was his biological father from an affair. Can’t prove this only speculation. Plus such an odd name Chester. Sounds like Podesta would have had an input on the naming of the child and coming from a Pedophile like Podesta. The truth will come out soon. Do A side by side of Angela Merkle and Hitler as well. Also Rod Rosenstein and Heinrich Himmler... looks are uncanny... all sounds crazy but hey life itself is straight up insane

Chester should not be the face of depression he should be recognized for his music!!!! He was more, his music was magic, it was hope...

Chester Bennington was a talented artist, and he has been my favorite singer since I was 6. He's always been my personal role model and an inspiration to me. I'll always be grateful that he held on for as long as he did and shared his art with the world, because it's his music that has helped me with my own mental problems and I know that many other fans will relate. May he rest in peace.

Depression is Fucking terrible. I still have the 30.06 round that I wanted to use to kill my self. I also think it had something to do with his previous drug problem. U can get brought back to that place by something so small and minute. If u don’t use your support group bad shit happens

The one thing I can comment on (being someone that has battled depression for a long time) is the point that Talinda makes saying Chester was not showing any signs of depression and seemed happy right before he ended things. From my own personal battle (which is ongoing) is the one time I was losing and had decided and planned my exit strategy was the time I was probably the happiest as I had decided to finish up opposed to battling the thoughts of doing it. For weeks people around me had noticed and commented on how I seemed happier and was more of a pleasure to be around, unknowing I had finalised my decision to end my life and given up the battle inside my head. The only reason I am still here today is one because of those comments and the realisation on how much people cared about me and secondly as stupid as it sounds the last season of Breaking Bad was airing and I didn't want to finish up my life before seeing Jessie & Walt's outcome as I was so invested in the show due to how good the show was. So anytime in my life I am down I just reference that point in my head and use my IQ over my emotions that the "demons" in my head are like the weather, you have your extremely good days and you have your extremely bad days and everything in between, but just cause is the world might be pissing on you one day doesn't mean that the next day, week or month isn't going to contain sunshine. Feels weird sharing this but if it helps 1 person who might read it then it's been worth typing it out :)

I've had depression for 15 years. I tried to kill myself numerous times but fortunately I was unsuccessful. I tried to OD but as many drugs as I would take, it didn't work. Depression is intense and I don't know if someone who hasn't experienced it could relate. If anyone is in that place, call out for support, and consider taking medication for it. Some people don't have the correct chemical activity in their body. You may have to take a serotonin reuptake inhibitor. Just watch out. They might not show signs of it, they may be able to cover it up. It's a scary mental disorder.

DimaShirshkov1 (3 days ago)
I think it's already too late to try to find all these "hidden senses" in his songs. When I was a kid used to love Linkin Park so much because my older brother "helped" me to discover this band by buying their debut album Hybrid Theory (I was somewhere between 7 and 8-years-old at that times). Rest in peace, misunderstood legend of new wave of rock music :( See you on the other side!

I have so much respect for Talinda for all the good she is out trying to do. She is bringing awareness. I believe Chester is so proud of her. VK could learn alot from her about being a true activist. I think people bringing this out there is so important!!!

I noticed that Alot of Chester Bennington's SONG'S Indicated that He Sadly did Suffer from ( Mental illnesse's ) IF YOU Look up the Lyrics to : "In The End" , "Numb" and "Breaking the Habits" , "Crawling" and several others You will Noitce The Pain He Endured I Felt Bad For Chester. I've got "Depression" , "Severe Anxiety" and "Severe Social Anxiety" I'm very shy at first and I hace Trust Issues when first Getting to know New People. I was Always an Outcast And I Struggled to Find and Make Friends and I Even struggled to Try and know HOW To Keep the Friendships Going, That is Still very Difficult for me do to and Many people Don't realize that. His Music Was Inspirational for Me and MANY OTHER PEOPLE Going through Different forms of many People Don't Relize That MENTAL ILLNESSES Are LIFE LONG and they Can Be Genetic and run in Families.

I Know 1 Clear Sign of Suicide IS : "Giving away Ones Personal Belongings" to friends / Family members Like Giving Away Their "Entire BassBall card Collection" , "Comic books" , " Cherished Thing's / Items The Person once held Dear and HAD GREAT Value to the Person.

I didn't know I had these signs before. like they said its very well cloaked you can be good one day and the next have everything hit you all at once the icing on the cake can be friends or family being real mean to you or random people. it hurts more now that Chester Bennington is not here because, I will never be able to see him in concert again. I read lot of the comments people believe he was murdered I thought the same thing he loved his fans and making music but the song and video scared me was, given up from minutes to midnight album. tomorrow will be a year of his death rip Chester I miss you

I literally lost it when I found out Chester passed away, I looked up to him (and still do) cause I have been battling depression ever since I was 14 years old and I still battle with it today (being 31 in september) But it's difficult to get help or let people in cause a lot of people think that I am doing this out of wanting attention, yes I cut till this day and yes I stay in my head now in days. Cause in my head I want to disappear or end it all, but here I am still here but I know that I won't beat this depression.

Nothing to do with Chester's mental state, he had everything to live for and valued every aspect of life. He was on the verge of exposing his Father and the rest of the Paedophile elites that were are still are at the centre of Pizza-Gate.

I have no sympathy for people who take their own life. It is the cheap and easy way out of your problems. Life should be cherished, respected, and held in the highest place no matter what the situation.

Amazing how Chester's wife says she never saw the severity of his thoughts even though he talked about it in multiples interviews. Some people are plain dumb
It’s still so saddening that Chester is gone, my heart definitely goes out to Talinda. Linkin Park is one of my favorite rock bands, they were apart of my teen years like others growing up. I good that he continues to Rest In Peace always along with Chris Cornel. Depression is hard, but there is hope and a light at the end of the tunnel, if you can continue to hold on...✨🙏🏽✨

My heart still has an empty spot where Chester once was. His music got my through some terrible things. In The End and Numb got me through and even gave me strength when ending a 17 yr abusive marriage and building my son and myself back up after all the damage done. RIP Chester. My son and I will always love you.

Change the title, her name is Talinda Bennington. Yes Chester was in LP and yes Chester was married to Talinda but she is her own individual.

one of the signs of suicide is literally one which she said she 'knew' like...if someones battling a deep and dark depression and then suddenly feels okay like she said, thats a MASSIVE FUCKING WARNING SIGN...that literally just means they have found a way out, and they're happy because their time on earth is temporary.

The thing people don't understand about suicidal thoughts is that it doesn't need any buildup once you've had them before in your life. You can be in a great spot in your life, see, hear, or come across something that triggers a memory and within an hour you can be going from living a normal day to seriously thinking you will not be able to get ris of those thoughta this time and decide to end it all on the spot.

I have always loved the musicality of your husband's voice. It was manly, raw, and hypnotic. Now he is at rest. He is suffering no more. I wish he did not do what he did. What's more, I feel his death was completely avoidable with nutritional psychiatry. I had major depression for more than three years. After more than three years on a maximum dose of an antidepressant, I started having strong suicidal urges, more than 60 times per day, getting stronger and stronger. My MD would not raise the dose of antidepressant because I was at a high dose. I was in trouble. But luckily, I was researching a book about nutritional psychiatry at the time. I found techniques that not only lifted my depression, but made me happy, without drugs. This was more than 5 years ago now. I have not touched an antidepressant pill for more than 5 years and I have never felt better, and my cognitive function is even better. I have never been happier to be alive! My name is William Jiang, MLS, and I am the author of 69 book. I am getting a nutritional psychiatry practice started at http://www.getwellwithwill.com but you can see my author blog at http://www.mentalhealthbooks.net If I had relied on modern psychiatry, I would have died before Chester. I am very much alive. I wish anybody reading this comment much healing and happiness. Bless.

Randy T (11 days ago)
Sad but also pretty selfish. I have severe depression also but even I know suicide isnt the answer. Chester had 6 kids...6...to just up and leave them, that's pretty selfish. Now his pain will get passed down to them, 6 souls going through life having to wonder deep down if he ever loved them. He didnt break the cycle of his past by killing himself, he passed it onto his kids. And to leave his wife to wonder how to raise 6 kids on her own and have to figure out how to make ends meet now that the money wont be coming in like it use to, yes I know she will still get lp revenue but not much and not for much longer. Mental illness is a problem, but at the level he was at in life, he should have been stronger. Sad yes, but also very selfish. I grew up on linkin parks music, and now it all seems meaningless if in the end (no pun intended) it really didnt matter cuz you offed yourself anyway. Rip chester, hopefully your 6 kids forgive you one day.
