The Killers saxophonist Tommy Marth commits suicide at 33
Tommy Marth, former saxophonist for The Killers, was found dead at his Las Vegas home Monday morning (4/23), with the official cause of death ruled as suicide by the Clark County Coroner's Office.
According to the Huffington Post, Marth died in the backyard of a gunshot wound to the head.
"Last night we lost our friend Thomas Marth," The Killers tweeted Monday. "Our prayers are with his family. There's a light missing in Las Vegas tonight. Travel well, Tommy."
The Las Vegas native joined The Killers, formed by frontman Brandon Flowers, in 2005, according to E! Online, and recorded two hit albums with the rockers -- 2006's "Sam's Town" and 2008's "Day & Age."
Marth, who toured the world with the mainstream rock act from 2008 through 2009, also performed with several Las Vegas acts, including Big Friendly Corporation and Black Camaro.
"I'm just trying to make sense of things right now and help some people who aren't doing very well," Las Vegas singer/songwriter Ryan Pardey told Las Vegas Weekly in an interview Monday. "He was one of the most talented people in our community and one of my closest friends since we were 18."
