Re: Chris Cornell dead at 52

Fresh track marks
Quote:
Chris Cornell had apparently taken more than Ativan before hanging himself, because we've learned he had fresh track marks on his arm when his body was discovered in a Detroit hotel room.

Sources connected to the investigation tell us ... the track marks were "obvious." The singer had a history of using drugs. The toxicology tests will reveal what drugs were found in Chris' system.

The new information is consistent with our story that Ted Keedick, Chris' longtime house engineer and tour manager, said Chris seemed "high" and "f***ed up" during the concert ... hours before his death.

Chris' wife has said her husband had told her he took "an extra Ativan or two."

It was never the Ativan, it played zero role in this. It was bullshit and his wife is full of shit.

Re: Chris Cornell dead at 52

You guys know anything about Ativan? It did play a role.

Ativan is described as "Can cause paranoid or suicidal ideation and impair memory, judgment, and coordination."
It's a Benzo that mixed with certain things can be very dangerous. It can be dangerous on it's own.

Re: Chris Cornell dead at 52

Maybe he told her he took "heroin", and the slurred speech made it sound like "Ativan."

Yet, you never once chimed in on the 7 page discussion in the otter forum about depression which discussed Ativan.

I'm not saying Ativan was the sole culprit here. It was in conjunction with being an addict. Drug addicts should not take Benzos as it is widely known to be a trigger to depression and suicidal thoughts. It's says so right in the list of side affects.
He was popping Ativan like candy and slamming at the same time. I've never known anyone to be suicidal simply because of Heroine. I've got 2 family members who have been hooked on that shit for decades and depression and or suicidal thoughts has never shown up.

And I'm supposed to participate in a thread I didn't even know existed? I've said it in this thread multiple times. That's enough.

Stop lumping Ativan in with other Benzos. It's like saying all republicans are bad because Trump.

Re: Chris Cornell dead at 52

while it is obligated to be listed as a potentiality, ativan usually doesn't cause suicidal ideation like SSRIs, SNRIs, and oh... heroin.

Toxicology Report Prescription Drugs in System.

Chris Cornell had several prescription drugs in his system when he hanged himself in a Detroit hotel room ... according to the toxicology report.

According to the report, obtained by TMZ, the singer had Naloxone (Narcan), Butalbital (sedative), Lorazepam (Ativan), Pseudoephedrine (decongestant) and barbiturates in his system at the time of death. It appears Chris had taken 4 (1 mg) Lorazepam tablets.

We broke the story, Vicky claims she was on the phone with Chris a half hour before his death ... when he began speaking in tones she hadn't heard since he was addicted to Oxycontin 14 years ago. She was so alarmed by the slurring and tone she asked Chris' bodyguard to break his hotel door down.

As we reported, cops observed fresh track marks on Chris' arm. According to the tox report, he had 4 needle puncture wounds on his left arm, but it appears the marks were from EMTs administering Narcan to counteract an opiate OD.

Family sources tell us Vicky and others are angry the medical examiner "jumped to conclusions" Chris committed suicide.

They believe he was so high on drugs he did not really form an intent to kill himself ... he was out of his mind when he put the exercise belt around his neck.

In essence, Chris' family believes this was an accidental death.

Re: Chris Cornell dead at 52

Someone I know who works in the medical field told me that 4 mg of Ativan is a lot. A typical dose would be more like .5 mg.

Re: Chris Cornell dead at 52

4mg at one time is a bit much, especially if given for anxiety, although for short term tx for insomnia 2-4mg is not uncommon, although treating chronic insomnia with habitual benzos is usually frowned upon.

Quote:
12:55 PM PT -- Vicky tells us, "Many of us who know Chris well, noticed that he wasn’t himself during his final hours and that something was very off. We have learned from this report that several substances were found in his system. After so many years of sobriety, this moment of terrible judgement seems to have completely impaired and altered his state of mind."

She added, "Something clearly went terribly wrong and my children and I are heartbroken and are devastated that this moment can never be taken back. We very much appreciate all of the love we have received during this extremely difficult time and are dedicated to helping others in preventing this type of tragedy.”

Re: Chris Cornell dead at 52

my only problem with this theory is that he hung himself.

if he got shit-faced on numerous drugs and alcohol then fell off a building, got in a car wreck, drowned in a pool or tub, fell down a flight of stairs and broke his neck, or something like that, then I could buy it.

but he hung himself. even if he was spurred on by the drugs, even contemplating doing such a thing mustv'e been rooted in some deep seeded depression.

Re: Chris Cornell dead at 52

Someone above mentioned track marks, but in the article it says it was from the EMT's giving shots of something while trying to revive him.

Re: Chris Cornell dead at 52

I'm still sadder than I thought I'd be about this, whatever the reasons behind it. It's always a bummer when it takes a sudden death for you to get a new appreciation for someone's talents, and I've been listening to a lot of Cornell's work lately.

One rediscovery for me has been the first Audioslave album, which I hadn't listened to in years, but it turns out to really hold up very well IMHO and has some terrific, if sad in hindsight, songs like "Show Me How To Live," "Shadow on the Sun" and "What You Are." I've had this one in near-constant rotation in the car the last few weeks.
