Today, Vicky Cornell, through her attorney, Kirk Pasich released a statement to Rolling Stone. Pasich tried to use Freedom of Information Act requests to get reports related to Cornell's death but was denied by Detroit's law enforcement. Here is the full statement:

Kirk Pasich, attorney for the family of the late Chris Cornell, today said that the City of Detroit Law Department denied a request his firm made under the Freedom of Information Act for reports relating to Chris Cornell’s death, stating: "Based on information provided by personnel from the City of Detroit Police Department (DPD) Homicide Section, it is our understanding that this matter is an open investigation. As such they believe that the release of any information at this time, including the records identified in your request, would compromise and/or interfere with their investigation."

Mr. Pasich confirmed the family has not yet seen any of the police or toxicology reports, noting that the family remains mystified that the medical examiner announced a cause of death when the full autopsy report has not been completed.

Given the information above, Mr. Pasich said that the family hopes there will be an end to speculation about the cause of Mr. Cornell’s death while the family awaits the definitive and complete reports. Vicky Cornell, the late star’s widow, said, “We are grateful for the outpouring of support as we mourn Chris’ passing, but we still have several unanswered questions about what led to his death. We believe the toxicology report will answer these questions.”

Shortly after news of Cornell's suicide was revealed, Cornell's wife rejected the ruling by law enforcement, blaming anti-anxiety medication. Vicky penned a very touching letter to her late husband, and paid tribute to him during a memorial service last Friday.
