Keith Flint Dead: The Prodigy Star's Death 'Not Suspicious', Inquest Hears


Prodigy frontman Keith Flint killed himself by hanging, according to a report Monday.

"Police attended, all protocols were followed and his death was confirmed as not suspicious", she stated.

The inquest was adjourned by Senior Coroner, Caroline Beasley-Murray until a full hearing on July 23. Flint was reportedly found dead at the property on the morning of March 4, 2019 after a suspected suicide.

The anti-establishment band The Prodigy was spawned by the United Kingdom illegal rave scene in the 1990s, but as mainstream tastes changed, later found their way to the top of the charts with the singles "Firestarter" and "Breathe". In the wake of Flint's death, The Prodigy canceled all their upcoming performances, including four high-profile United States festival gigs in May. "He will be forever missed", the post read before thanking followers in advance for "respecting the privacy of all concerned at this time".

A statement by Flint's bandmates Liam Howlett and Maxim after his death described him as "a true pioneer, innovator and legend". He was only 49 years old.

A post from The Chemical Brothers' official Twitter account said: "so sad to hear about Keith Flint, we played many gigs with the prodigy over the years and they were always friendly and supportive".

Flint took over vocal duties with The Prodigy in 1996 for their classic track Firestarter and then appeared on the follow-up single Breathe.

The group released an album, No Tourists, in November and was set to embark on a USA tour in May.
