Sad news broke yesterday morning that The Prodigy’s frontman Keith Flint has passed away.
Keith who wrote songs such as Firestarter, Breathe and Smack My B**** Up was found dead at his home in Pleshey near Chelmsford.
It has been said that he passed away due to suicide and Essex police have said that they are not treating the case as a murder enquiry.
Keith took his own life just days after putting his home what he shared with his wife on the market after they separated last year.
It was only 48 hours before his death that Keith ran the Chelmsford park run in a personal best time of 21 minutes 22 seconds on Saturday morning.
The Sun have reported that the split from his wife may also have prompted him to start taking drugs again.
In a interview in The Sun in 2015 Keith said he ‘wasn’t saving up for anything’ and was ‘cashing it all now’:
I’ve always had this thing inside me that, when I’m done, I’ll kill myself. I swear to God that’s not suicidal – it’s definitely a positive thing. The moment I start sh***ing the bed is when you’ll see me on the front of a bus.’
