Chris Cornell‘s wife, Vicky Cornell, just touched down in Detroit for the first time since her husband’s death earlier this year — and she is there to speak to the Medical Examiner about the legendary rocker’s cause of death.

Vicky arrived in Detroit early Friday morning and headed straight to a meeting with the Wayne County Medical Examiner.

Vicky believes her late husband’s death was not a suicide.  She’s been very vocal on the matter, and in an interview this summer, she questioned the coroner’s quick call on his cause of death.  She insisted Cornell was far from depressed, “didn’t want to die,” and attributed his actions that night to prescription pills.

We’re told her reasoning for meeting with the coroner is to discuss details related to the Soundgarden singer’s death earlier this May.

Since her husband’s death, we’re told Vicky has continued devoting herself to helping those struggling with addiction, specifically vulnerable children.  At Cornell’s funeral, in lieu of flowers, Vicky requested fans donate to Phoenix House, a non-profit drug and rehab organization.

We reached out to a rep for Chris Cornell, who declined to comment.
