The Killers Saxophonist Tommy Marth Commits Suicide
Tommy Marth, saxophonist for The Killers, committed suicide earlier this week, a spokeswoman for the Clark County Coroner's Office in Las Vegas confirms to E! News.
The musician's body was found in his Las Vegas-area home Monday morning. He was 33. "Last night we lost our friend Thomas Marth. Our prayers are with his family," the band tweeted Monday. "There's a light missing in Las Vegas tonight. Travel well, Tommy."
Marth joined The Killers' Brandon Flowers, Dave Keuning, Ronnie Vannucci, Jr. and Mark Stoermer in the recording studio beginning in 2005 and played on their second and third albums, Sams' Town and Day & Age. Marth was part of the band's touring lineup from 2008-2010.
The band -- known for hits like "Mr. Brightside" and "Human" -- also expressed their condolences via Facebook.
