The 52-year-old's widow, Vicky, has since shared her thoughts on the ruling, suggesting a prescription drug used to treat anxiety and addiction problems could be to blame as he had previously suffered with alcohol and drug abuse issues.

Chris Cornell death: Wife Vicky Karayiannis breaks silence to deny suicide reports .
The wife of late Soundgarden singer Chris Cornell has broken her silence for the first time since his tragic death. In a heartfelt statement, Vicky Karayiannis denied reports Cornell may have intentionally attempted suicide after a medical examiner said he took his own life. Cornell, 52, was found dead in his room at the MGM Grand hotel in Detroit on 17 May, just hours after performing a gig with Soundgarden. According to a preliminary autopsy conducted by the Wayne County Medical Examiner's Office, Cornell was found with a band around his neck in an apparent suicide. However, further tests are being carried out to determine the cause of death. In her first statement, Karayiannis said: "Chris's death is a loss that escapes words and has created an emptiness in my heart that will never be filled. As everyone who knew him commented, Chris was a devoted father and husband. He was my best friend. His world revolved around his family first and of course, his music, second. He flew home for Mother's Day to spend time with our family." Karayiannis explains that she spoke to Cornell before his Fox Theatre concert and the couple discussed future plans, including a holiday over Memorial Day weekend. The former publicist says: "When we spoke after the show, I noticed he was slurring his words; he was different. When he told me he may have taken an extra Ativan or two, I contacted security and asked that they check on him.
