A saxophone player who toured with The Killers has been found dead in Las Vegas in an apparent suicide.

The Clark County coroner's office confirmed 33-year-old Thomas Christian Marth was pronounced dead of a gunshot wound to the head on Monday. He was found in the backyard, though it's unclear whose.

A tweet from the band's official Twitter account earlier this week announced Marth's passing, saying the band's prayers are with his family and that "there's a light missing in Las Vegas tonight."
