Prodigy Singer Keith Flint Found Dead In His Home At Age 49

Keith Flint, singer in British electronic group The Prodigy, has been found dead in his home in Essex at the age of 49.

A spokesperson for Essex Police said that he was found early Monday morning:

We were called to concerns for the welfare of a man at an address in Brook Hill, North End, just after 8.10am on Monday.

“We attended and, sadly, a 49-year-old man was pronounced dead at the scene. His next of kin have been informed. The death is not being treated as suspicious and a file will be prepared for the coroner.

An East of England Ambulance spokeswoman said that ambulance staff were sent to attend to an unconscious man:

“We were called at 8.08am with reports of a man who was unconscious in Dunmow.

“We sent an ambulance officer, Essex and Herts Air Ambulance and one ambulance. Sadly a man in his forties died at the scene.”

Flint’s iconic vocals on the Prodigy’s hits Breathe and Firestarter made him one of the most distinctive figures of 90s electronic music.

The Prodigy had just finished a tour of Australia in January.
