The cause of death of British singer Keith Flint and a front man for popular band Prodigy has been ruled as suicide by the Police, as he was said to have hanged himself, just as earlier suspected by his band member.
A report by Rolling Stone suggest that a coroner revealed the cause of death to an inquest in Essex, England Monday. A toxicology report is still in the works and a full hearing is scheduled to take place July 23rd.
The coroner also confirmed an earlier police statement that the death of Keith Flint is not being considered suspicious.
The singer was reported died in March 4th at his home in Essex, England at the age of 49. While a cause of death was not immediately revealed, the Prodigy’s keyboardist and songwriter Liam Howlett wrote on the band’s Instagram that Flint “took his own life.”
Flint first joined the Prodigy as a dancer, but he soon became the lead singer as the group prepped their 1997 album The Fat of the Land, which produced the hits “Breathe,” “Firestarter” and “Smack My Bitch Up.” The record was a smash in the UK and the U.S., and Flint became the charismatic, unmistakable face of the Prodigy.
