The Mystery Behind Chester Bennington’s Death: A Deep Dive into The Bowels of Hell! (Part 1)

by Randy “Rocket” Cody

It was nearly 7 years ago that LINKIN PARK singer Chester Bennington was found dead hanging in his home on the birthday of his friend Chris Cornell of SOUNDGARDEN band.

This happened on July 20, 2017, and kicked off the most intense investigation into the death of a rock star ever, and I was the journalist who was responsible for causing all the trouble they claimed.

This epic three-part report will culminate on that date’s seventh anniversary as a way to honor the fallen who tried to protect children from being harmed by the elite cult in Washington DC that is being covered up the worldwide mainstream news media. I was the reporter responsible for ordering the release of Chester’s official autopsy report which took over 100 days to get issued, the first red flag I felt signaled foul play was definitely involved.

The ‘black book’ Chris Cornell received in the files called Swordfish is not make believe. It is very real and connects very powerful ring members, like the Clinton’s, all the way to late convicted pedophile billionaire Jeffrey Epstein and a spot called Comet Pizza in Washington DC which has pedophile artwork on walls. The Clinton’s, Obama and their right-hand man John Podesta attended events there. This has already been proven. 

In January of this year, I detailed point by point in a shocking report, why I believe Chris and Chester got murdered, and exactly how it connects to the Epstein scandal. Just one month before this, during the Christmas holiday week leading up to New Year’s a Watergate style break-in happened at “The Fixer’s” office in Brentwood, California, literally just down the street from where my parents have resided since the late 90s. His name is Michael Sitrick, and he is the celeb PR fixer for the likes of Harvey Weinstein, Epstein, and MÖTLEY CRÜE drummer Tommy Lee I learned.

Jeffrey Epstein’s Client List: How It Connects To Chris Cornell And Chester Bennington Being Murdered (

Chris Cornell was revealing to his fans from the stage before he died that there was a serious problem going on with respect to “sex slavery” in the USA. I learned that his wife Vicky was involved with the ring’s main procurer of underage victims, HOLE rocker Courtney Love, who I also found out has secretly been dating Prince Andrew, one of the most important members of the elite pedophile ring.

Love is a known friend and frequent of Comet Ping Pong and Epstein Island. She is friends with these monsters, so it’s safe to assume she’s been in it for a long time. What if she brought her hubby Kurt along one night to a twisted Satanic ritual and he didn’t like what he saw?

Mr. Sitrick, a renowned Hollywood crisis manager, says the New Year’s Day break-in at his Brentwood offices where thieves stole computers “has to be a coincidence”

Coincidence, huh? What about the underage sex video tapes that a woman has come forward to say do indeed exist depicting the unnamed John celebs who paid for sex with girls under the age of 18.

What was stolen from your office, Mr. Sitrick? Computers, right? Hard drives can hold very damning information, can’t they? This all went down when the files were opened on Epstein, naming those associates within his circle of contacts, but did not go after specific ‘inner circle’ elite members.

The woman who came forward connected to the Virginia Giuffre/Esptein case is named Sarah Ransome.

In ousted guitar player Mick Mars leaked court documents, my world-famous website The Metal Den reported that drummer Tommy Lee was connected to the Epstein ring via the musician’s former relationship with the ring’s alleged lure Naomi Campbell, who held parties where these girls were solicited to the elite like plates of good steak.

Sitrick & Company, according to the news reporting is a “global crisis public relations firm who has a client list of the rich and powerful — including Jeffrey Epstein” — was broken into over the New Year’s holiday las t year by thieves who stole company computers just prior to “a trove of long-sealed court documents related to the admitted pedophile” were released.

Michael Sitrick said his penthouse offices at 11999 San Vicente Boulevard, along with other occupants of the four-story building in Brentwood that bears his company’s name Sitrick & Co., had been ‘broken into by unknown thieves’ just as the scandalous new documents about Epstein’s activities with underage girls was made public. 

“It didn’t cross my mind,” Sitrick told Los Angeles magazine over the phone when asked if he was concerned about the timing of the burglary, just hours before a years-long records fight ended when a judge ordered the release of roughly 900 pages of documents from the 2015 federal civil case Giuffre v. Maxwell. 

The records give insight into accusations against Epstein and his accomplice Ghislaine Maxwell. As the story goes, the new revelations were part of a defamation suit filed by lawyers for Virginia Giuffre, who was underage when she says she was trafficked to powerful men, including Prince Andrew, via Maxwell. 

“It has to be a coincidence,” Sitrick said of the theft, adding that there were no Epstein records in his office, or any compromising information about any of his clients among the items stolen. 

“There were several offices in the building, in addition to ours, which were broken into and robbed. All of our computers are all password and dual factor protected and encrypted. It’s state of the art,” he said. “No one is getting into them.” 

It seems to me that Mr. Sitrick has a lot to lose, namely his life, if those sex tapes identifying the criminal pedophile elites gets out.

Court records indicate Sitrick was engaged to represent Jeffrey Epstein by Miami lawyer Roy Black in 2005, just as Palm Beach Police initiated a child sex crimes investigation, and three years before the financier pleaded guilty to a charge of procuring sex from a 14-year-old minor in a secret plea deal ironed out by prosecutors, one that came despite allegations from dozens of young women who said they were assaulted by the billionaire at his West Palm Beach home. 

Florida federal prosecutors showed “poor judgement,” a 2020 Department of Justice Office of Professional Responsibility Report report says, by making an NPA – or non prosecution agreement – a sweetheart deal that allowed Epstein to serve 13 months in a jail work-release program. He was a registered sex offender. 

But Sitrick told Los Angeles he began working with then convicted pedophile in 2011 after the New York Post ran a story about Epstein and Prince Andrew that started this way: “Meet Manhattan’s raunchy new odd couple — the prince and the pervert.”

The expose on the late pedophile billionaire’s relationship with Prince Andrew ran with a photograph of the men on a walk-and-talk through Central Park that came after Epstein “admitted to his criminal abuse of a minor.” 

It’s no big shock that Prince Andrew is among the names of potential witnesses in the lawsuit. Readers may recall my connecting Courtney Love with the Prince in a twisted secret love affair that stretches beyond your wildest imagination.

Giuffre produced a photo of her with Prince Andrew as evidence, and a Palm Beach Police report details a search warrant executed at Epstein’s home at 358 El Brillo Way, describes a “lot of naked girls in photographs throughout the house,” and notes that Epstein’s attorney Alan Dershowitz had tried to malign at least one of the accusers cooperating with detectives. 

Sitrick wants us to believe that he was never in the same room with Epstein. Seems about as far-fetched as the rest of his cover story, to keep from getting eliminated from the earth realm entirely.

Court records reveal a contract between Sitrick and Jeffrey Epstein dated November 4, 2005 with an agreed upon “non-refundable retainer of $30,000 as a minimum annual fee,” plus “an hourly rate range of $165 to $650,” depending on the person performing the services.

There is also a “success fee” mentioned in the contract, customarily requested by Sitrick & Company “if we believe we have performed services for a client which result in significant benefits to the client beyond those we believe a normal public relations firm could achieve.”

“I never met Jeffrey Epstein,” Sitrick said, adding that his business dealings with the convicted felon were conducted by phone with lawyers and the bulk of his work dealt with the New York Post story about Prince Andrew. “If Epstein documents still existed [at his firm] they wouldn’t be on anything that was taken.” 

Epstein, who authorities say (gasp) committed suicide in 2019 while awaiting trial on federal sex trafficking charges and conspiracy charges, was hardly Sitrick’s only controversial client. Harvey Weinstein is another, and so is Tommy Lee.

Another suicide? Do you see the red flags? It sure seems strange that anyone who gets close to revealing the real players in PEDOGATE gets suicided, just like Chris and Chester.

Sitrick even wrote a book called The Fixer: Secrets for Saving Your Reputation in the Age of Viral Media. He and his firm were described this way in 2006:

The combination of elegance and pugnaciousness has attracted a vast assortment of clients, ranging from the embattled (the Catholic Archdiocese of Los Angeles) to the weird (the Kabbalah Center)…to the arrogant (the Getty Center) to the overexposed (rock and roller Tommy Lee) to the shady (Carl Freer, the gun-wielding Swedish national whose business partner, Bo Stefan Eriksson, was jailed in April after totaling a $1 million Ferrari Enzo in Malibu). It was a decidedly different time when Sitrick repped Cheers star Kelsey Grammer, who was accused of raping his family’s babysitter in 1993. A grand jury would refuse to indict him, which a Somerset County prosecutor in New Jersey blamed on the woman’s delay in reporting the crime.  Politicians and media titans, including Rush Limbaugh after he was popped on drug charges, have also turned to Sitrick for counsel. He has kept his clients’ secrets for 35 years and maintains that the burglars would have no way to access them with the stolen items.” 

The lawsuit that led to the two document dumps was settled in 2017. After Epstein’s death, Maxwell went on the run until she was tracked to a hideout in New Hampshire by the FBI and charged with a six-count indictment on federal charges related to “the sexual exploitation and abuse of multiple minor girls by Jeffrey Epstein.”

She was convicted of child sex trafficking in 2021 and is serving her sentence at a Florida federal prison

So the system busted has a woman behind bars but will not put any other men connected to this scandal in prison with her?

It seems Sitrick is desperately trying to cover up the truth, and protect his male celeb clients llike Tommy Lee, who has been tied to a slew of different rape allegations, and indecent behavior, is directly tied to the ring and has been attending their private parties for many years, thanks to his ex girlfriend Naomi Campbell.

As far as suspects who could have broken into his penthouse office, Sitrick says he is perplexed as there was no sign of forced entry and no employee key card registered entry to the building. Sitrick said his IT staff met with the LAPD. 

“It’s very strange,” he said. “How did they get into the building?”

I learned that at the root of the problem is a super drug the elite take off their child victims called Adrenochrome, that was shown in the Johnny Depp film Fear And Loathing In Las Vegas.

Depp and Vicky Cornell worked together on launching a club called ‘Man Ray‘ in Paris, France, and oddly enough, my prime suspect in the unsolved Black Dahlia killer case is none other than a dude named Man Ray. He was part of an early version of the elite pedo ring and Hollywood director John Huston was part of it, and this was all allowed to be covered up, along with the Black Dahlia murder victim’s black book that named very powerful people. To this day, LAPD will not let the public see what is inside Elizabeth Short’s ‘black book’.

My work was called a hoax, after one of my articles became a viral internet sensation, even surpassing the massive attention I was already getting to write about Chris Cornell. I cannot even quantify how big both got once I stepped up to cover the matters independently. Literally over one hundred news outlets both mainstream and independent asked me to do interviews or to allow them to republish my legendary reporting.

When a site called YourNewsWire (now called Newspunch) covered my work that purported a widespread human trafficking and sex slavery ring was at the center of these two rock stars deaths all Hell broke loose, and I became overnight Public Enemy #1 and the most famous and feared journalist of all time. This story that insisted I was pushing a “Chester Murder Hoax” was shared on Facebook ‘1 million times’. Estimated reach in the first 24 hours of being published was 500 million people. Dozens of news outlets reposted this same article. It went as far as being covered by Daily Pakistan News, believe it or not. Compounding all the sites, who covered my reporting between both Chris and Chester, we are talking about over one billion people reached easily since 2017.

The funny thing is the guy behind News Punch, a New World Order backed site, rebranded its site identiry again to the PeoplesVoice and it was exposed that the owner worked for BBC and his mother was one of its biggest contributors.

All of this led up to me being permanently suspended on Elon Musk’s X/Twitter platform earlier this year without any warnings. I provide a screenshot from around June to August of 2017 on Twitter just for my personal profile, and clearly even alone without anyone publishing my work I was racking up millions in web traffic.
