Bombshell: LAPD Find Chester Bennington Murder Suspect

Los Angeles Police Department detectives and prosecutors working on the Chester Bennington murder case have turned over enough evidence to arrest a person of interest, but are facing "strong pushback" from higher-ups within the department.

Los Angeles Police Department detectives and prosecutors working on the Chester Bennington murder case have turned over enough evidence to arrest a person of interest, but are facing “strong pushback” from higher-ups within the department.

An LAPD source says they believe the murder of Chester Bennington was carried out by a “crew” led by an assassin with close ties to several unnamed yet implicated music industry executives.

A small faction within the LAPD have interviewed Bennington’s close associates, friends and neighbors, and have identified a person of interest who “under normal circumstances would be arrested by now.

But the detectives are facing “strong pushback” from senior members of the department who have warned them against proceeding with the investigation.

We’ve been told if we arrest this guy, jobs will be on the line.

LAPD detectives and a LAPD Chief, the department’s highest rank under Commissioner, have told those obstructing the investigation that if they are not allowed to proceed with the arrest they will go public with the damaging evidence of a criminal conspiracy now in the hands of senior department officials.

What we’ve found is staggering and the people we think it might implicate are at the very top of the music business,” said the Police Chief. “There is not going to be any Houdini-like escape for these people. If this pushback stops us for much longer we will go public. We will send the evidence to WikiLeaks or I will personally hold my own press conference if I have to do that.

Cover up

Police reportedly launched a murder investigation into the death of Chester Bennington’s immediately after his death, with insiders claiming it was “extremely likely” the Linkin Park frontman was killed in eerily similar circumstances to his close friend Chris Cornell.

Now the evidence, according to law enforcement sources, implicates senior music industry executives, their subordinates, and even select elected officials in far more alleged serious crimes than just the murder of the two musicians. LAPD sources said new discoveries include evidence linking entertainment industry elites with:

  • child exploitation
  • sex crimes with children (minors)
  • human trafficking
  • ritual murder
  • blackmail
  • money laundering
  • other felony crimes

Chester Bennington, who sang at Chris Cornell’s recent funeral after becoming close to the Soundgarden frontman in recent years, was reportedly working with Cornell’s foundation to prevent the sexual exploitation of vulnerable children.

The Linkin Park frontman – the father of six children, and also the godfather to Chris Cornell’s three children – was on record talking about the long-term emotional fallout of being sexually abused by an older male as a child.

If I think back to when I was really young, to when I was being molested, to when all these horrible things were going on around me, I shudder,” he told the metal magazine Kerrang! in 2011.

Close friends of Chris Cornell say that he was shown a “black book” that included the name of one of his professional associates. After setting up his foundation and investigating further, Cornell was close to exposing a network of pedophiles working within the entertainment industry – a dangerous job that he considered his “duty.”

The official investigation into Chris Cornell’s death is closed, but new evidence could re-open the case. His widow and many of his fans are unsatisfied with the ruling by police and medical examiners that the Soundgarden frontman committed suicide, pointing out that he was found with nine broken ribs and a head wound – injuries unaccounted for in his official post-mortem.
