Late Linkin Park frontman, Chester Bennington’s autopsy report has finally been revealed to the public.
According to multiple online sources, Chester’s autopsy report noted that there were traces of alcohol in system, which means he had consumed alcohol before he hung himself. The Los Angeles County Coroner’s Office Report also added that they carried out tests for MDMD, a type of ecstasy, but tests did not detect the drug.
However, E News Online reported that authorities discovered a bottle of Zolpidem (a sedative primarily used for the treatment of trouble sleeping), a pint of Corona and an empty bottle of Stella Artois at the scene. No suicide note was found, although they did recover a handwritten journal.
Fragments of fingernails were found underneath Chester’s iPhone, and the singer’s wife Talinda Bennington confirmed that it was a habit he had whenever he was anxious. Much to everyone’s surprise, Talinda also revealed that Chester had suicidal thoughts before, back in 2006. Chester left the house with a gun one time after drinking heavily.
The former Linkin Park lead singer was found dead on July 20 after he committed suicide by hanging. His body was discovered in his Los Angeles home by his housekeeper.
