The Prodigy band's lead singer Keith Flint was reportedly found dead at his home in Dunmox, Essay, on Monday morning.
According to a statement issued by the police, Flint was pronounced dead at the scene following many attempts to resuscitate him, saying that they were “called to concerns for the welfare of a man" just after 08:00 GMT.
"Sadly, a 49-year-old man was pronounced dead at the scene," the statement said.
"The death is not being treated as suspicious and a file will be prepared for the coroner,” it added.
Flint, who was set to start a U.S. tour in May, became one of the faces of Britpop in the 1990s when his energetic dance style and punk haircuts made him one of the movement's most recognizable characters.
