Chester Bennington‘s autopsy and toxicology results have been obtained following the death of the Linkin Park vocalist back in July. The Linkin Park frontman was found dead inside of his own residence after reportedly hanging himself back on July 20th, 2017. According to the toxicology report, Chester had a small amount of alcohol in his system as well as MDMA (ecstasy) according to a report obtained by TMZ, which has since been updated detailing that “blood also tested “presumptive positive” for MDMA (ecstasy) … based on one test. Two subsequent tests did not detect the drug, and the ultimate conclusion was Chester was not under the influence of drugs when he died.”
Authorities found a prescription bottle of Zolpidem — generic Ambien — on his dresser. There was also a pint glass of Corona, which was less than half full — and an empty bottle of Stella Artois.
Police found pieces of fingernail underneath his iPhone and on a table in the bedroom. Chester’s wife, Talinda, told cops he would do that when he was anxious. She said Chester had a history of depression and previous suicide attempts — including one in 2006 when he left the house with a gun after drinking heavily.
Talinda added Chester was currently in an outpatient treatment program. A month before his death, Chester reportedly told friends he’d been sober for 6 months.
“He’d been prescribed anti-depressants in the past, but had not taken them for more than a year … according to Talinda.”
Additionally, police noted that a suicide note wasn’t found but that Chester had written what they described as an “apparent autobiography” before his death.
