Wow, this is pretty shocking to hear.
It was one thing to hear an engineer say Chris Cornell seemed “fucked up” during his final performance; there are lots of explanations for that.
But this latest evidence could only mean the Soundgarden frontman had relapsed in his long battle with substance abuse.
Sources connected to the investigation have now told TMZ they saw fresh track marks on the body. The marks, which indicate recent injections, were apparently “obvious.”
Chris had battled addiction since first getting hooked on heroin at only 13 years old.
So sad to hear he may have lost the fight.
We’ll obviously know for sure once toxicology reports come out in the full autopsy.
