RIP, Tommy Marth. You'll be missed.

The Killers are in mourning today after their beloved saxophonist took his own life earlier this week.

A spokeswoman for the Clark County Coroner's Office in Las Vegas confirmed to E! News that Marth's body was found in his Las Vegas-area home Monday morning and the official cause of death was suicide. He was 33.

Marth joined the Brandon Flowers-led rock band, which formed in 2001, in the recording studio beginning in 2005 and played on the Killers' second and third albums, Sams' Town and Day & Age, before becoming part of its touring lineup in 2008. He also played with a host of local Sin City acts including the Big Friendly Corporation and Black Camaro.

"Last night we lost our friend Thomas Marth. Our prayers are with his family.There's a light missing in Las Vegas tonight. Travel well, Tommy," read a statement the Killers posted on their Facebook page and Twitter.

Marth is survived by his parents and two siblings.
