A police spokesman told two Detroit newspapers that the singer was found with a band around his neck. The group was formed a quarter-century ago as a tribute to Andrew Wood, the lead singer of the Seattle bands Malfunkshun and Mother Love Bone, who died in March 1990 of a heroin overdose.

The band broke up in 1997 and Cornell in 2001 joined members of Rage Against The Machine to form Audioslave, which earned acclaim with its self-titled album.

Cornell, age 52, died Wednesday night following Soundgarden's concert in Detroit.

Wayne County spokeswoman Lisa Croff said Thursday morning that the autopsy is being conducted by the county Medical Examiner's office.

Cornell, who was on tour with Soundgarden, had performed a concert in Detroit on Wednesday night.

The death was first confirmed by Cornell's representative Brian Bumbery, who said in a statement to the AP, it was "sudden and unexpected" and that his wife and family were shocked. Police said Thursday that the 52-year-old's death is being investigated as a possible suicide.

"In the interview that aired on Weekend Sunday, Martin noted Cornell was still recording with Soundgarden, and asked if he needed the band and the solo projects to make the whole?" Fans of Cornell speculated that Cornell may have died as a result of autoerotic asphyxiation, but the medical examiner did not explicitly cite that as a cause of death.
