CHRIS CORNELL: Expert: Not Enough Damage To Door Latch!

TMD has obtained what is undoubtedly the most damning expert testimony to date in the ongoing
death investigation for late SOUNDGARDEN frontman, Chris Cornell. The expert locksmith and former 28 year veteran of law enforcement who was contacted directly on the phone, confirmed after being shown a visual demonstration of the damage (or lack thereof) done to the door of room #1136 that there is foul play involved.

If Martin Kirsten, the bodyguard hired to protect Chris, actually kicked through the hotel door to force
entry as he claims this expert offered the following response:

“I would expect more visible damage around the latch area, whether or not the deadbolt was thrown.”

So that proves in a court of law beyond a shadow of a doubt that Martin Kirsten is not telling the truth when it c...

It seems rather strange that Chris Cornell would hang himself with a piece of workout
equipment when he clearly stated in an interview with ESPN back in 2013 that he did not prefer to use machines (equipment, etc.), confessing instead to being more into isometric exercise, where no equipment whatsoever is used.

Question: So you decided to get back into shape. What did you do?

Chris: I prefer not to use any machines. I focus a lot on cardio, which is what I do when I’m on stage. I also am into isometric workouts…

(Pictured: A Typical Isometric Workout)

Well if Chris did not use equipment of any kind during a workout then who did the red elastic workout band that was found around his neck belong to?

Was it perhaps the property of none other than the bodyguard Martin Kirsten?

And doesn’t ...

CHRIS CORNELL – Was He Being Abused By His Wife?

TMD has learned that back on Feb 6, 2017, a cryptic post was shared via the late Chris Cornell’s official Facebook account. It read:

“He is a worried Moon and is afraid of what is to come.”

Although they are lyrics from one of his solo songs entitled “Worried Moon”, it’s now believed that the troubled rock star was suffering from both serious emotional and physical abuse in the final year of his life. Don’t worry, TMD has strong evidence to back up this claim.

Was Chris Cornell trying to send everyone a message before he died on May 18th in Detroit after a SOUNDGARDEN concert?

Or was it someone else who posted that message?

It is not yet known if Vicky Cornell did have access to her husband’s profile at that time but looking at how Chris Cornell’s Facebook account has been taken over comp...

VICKY CORNELL – Remote Activated Lights Signaled Chris’ Murder?

Over the past few weeks since the world learned of the tragic death of SOUNDGARDEN front man, Chris Cornell, 52, the rock industry has been turned upside down trying to come to grips with the loss of one of its greatest all time talents. Cornell’s music sales have jumped 2,400 percent since the sad new broke and while fans continue to mourn, skeptics of Vicky Cornell’s version of events remain steadfast in direct opposition to the recent ruling on the case as ‘suicide’.

Now that it has been established via TMD’s closer inspection of the autopsy that Chris had over half a dozen rib fractures at the time he died, it’s obvious the late musician suffered extensive internal injury not typically associated with the ruling of ‘suicide by hanging’.

How could a body “partially suspended” from a ho...
