Riley Keough Heartbreaking Message After Brother Benjamin’s Suicide Death
Lisa Marie Presley‘s daughter, Riley Keough, has broken her silence on her brother, Benjamin Keough‘s death — and her final words to him are heartbreaking.
The actress posted a touching tribute to her younger sibling on Instagram Saturday — a week after his body was discovered in Calabasas in what was a suicide by gunshot wound. Riley also attached several photos of the two of them.
She writes, “Mornings are the hardest. I forget you’re gone. I can’t cry because of the fear that I will never stop. A pain that’s new to me. You. There are no words for you.”

Riley continued to describe Ben, saying … “Angel is the closest I could think of. Pure light. Baby brother. Best friend. Wild man. Intellectual. Witness to my life. Twin soul. Protector. Too sensitive for this harsh world.”
And then, her farewell … “I hope you give me strength to endure the giant hole you’ve left in my heart. I hope you give me the strength to eat. I hope you’re cradled in love. I hope you feel my love. I hope you feel god. You are god. I can’t believe you’ve left me. Not you sweet Ben Ben. Anyone but you. I guess this is true heartbreak. I hope we meet again.”
TMZ broke the story … Benjamin was found dead last weekend with what appeared to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound. The L.A. County Medical Examiner determined Benjamin died from a shotgun to his mouth — his death was officially ruled a suicide.
Riley and Ben were only a few years apart in age, and they were the only children of Lisa and Danny Keough. RIP
