    The Prodigy's Keith Flint has been found dead at his Essex mansion after taking his own life aged 49.

    Confirming his shock death in an emotional statement on the band's Instragram page, current members Liam Howlett and Leeroy Thornhill revealed it was suicide.
    "The news is true, I can’t believe I’m saying this but our brother Keith took his own life over the weekend," they wrote.

    "I’m shell shocked, f**kin angry, confused and heart broken ..... r.i.p brother Liam #theprodigy"

    Keith's wife, DJ Mayumi Kai, is believed to have been in Japan at the time of his death.

    Really innovative band from the 90's. Still remember watching their music videos on MTV, and how cool they were

    Not a fan of the genre, but Prodigy's music was so iconic everyone's heard it. I'd always thought they had reached #1 with Smack My Bitch Up, but I guess not. Bummer to hear that he's dead. Drugs? Suicide?

    When I was 12, my Aunt asked if I had any music to recommend (I think my Uncle liked some of my other CDs). I suggested Prodigy, not thinking it may not be to the taste of my middle age relatives. They were not impressed, lol.

    Prodigy is still one of my favorite bands to listen to at work. Breathe is awesome to listen to at work to drown out stupidity. :D
