Autopsy & Toxicology Report Released For Linkin Park’s Chester Bennington

TMZ have shared the autopsy and toxicology report for Linkin Park’s Chester Bennington, who tragically committed suicide by hanging on July 20. The report says the singer did have a small amount of alcohol in his system and that his blood was “presumptive positive” for MDMA in one test, but two subsequent tests did not detect the drug, meaning he was not under the influence of it at the time of his death. Police also found a prescription bottle of Zolpidem (generic Ambien) on his dresser, as well as a half full pint glass of Corona and an empty bottle of Stella Artois. Fingernail pieces were located underneath his iPhone and on a table in the bedroom, which Bennington’s wife Talinda said was related to a nervous tic he had. No suicide notes were found, but two apparent biographies, one handwritten and one typed, were found. Talinda says the journals were part of an ongoing outpatient treatment program for addiction. The vocalist had suffered with depression and suicidal thoughts in the past, and had previously taken anti-depressants, until he decided to stop for over a year. The housekeeper that found Bennington said he was not acting oddly the night before his death. You can read a full redacted report HERE.
