    The wife of late Linkin Park singer Chester Bennington says she's feeling the love from the rocker's fans but she's also feeling the loss.

    Talinda Bennington said in a statement late Thursday she wants "to let my community and the fans worldwide know that we feel your love. We feel your loss as well."

    Chester Bennington hanged himself from a bedroom door in his home near Los Angeles last week. His death was ruled a suicide.

    Bennington was found dead on what would have been the 53rd birthday of Soundgarden frontman Chris Cornell, who hanged himself in May. The two were friends.
