Chi Cheng Passes Away“Our dearest Family,
This is the hardest thing to write to you. Your love and heart and devotion to Chi was unconditional and amazing. I know that you will always remember him as a giant of a man on stage with a heart for every one of you. He was taken to the emegency room and at 3 am today his heart just suddenly stopped. He left this world with me singing songs he liked in his ear.
He fought the good fight.You stood by him sending love daily. He knew that he was very loved and never alone. I will write more later. I will be going through the oneloveforchi and any other information may not be reliable. If you have any stories or messages to share please send them to the onelove site. Please hold Mae and Ming and the siblings and especially Chi’s son, Gabriel in your prayers. It is so hard to let go.
With great love and “Much Respect!” Mom J (and Chi)”

I still am not terribly familiar with Deftones, but Chi's reach extended far beyond anyone could have dreamed. Very tragic news for a beloved figure.

Does anyone else find this questionable? The site went down pretty quickly after the statement went up, and we're not seeing confirmation from anybody.

EDIT: Looks like Chino's facebook confirmed it. RIP Chi, you really will be missed by so many.

there's a good chance that site cannot handle the amount of traffic it might be getting now. If this is a hoax, it is truly awful.
