Chester Bennington Toxicology Report Shows Alcohol & Ecstasy in Linkin Park Singer's System

According to autopsy and toxicology results obtained by TMZ, Linkin Park singer Chester Bennington had alcohol in his system at the time of his suicide on July 20. The report, first published by TMZ, said that the singer was not under the influence of drugs at the time of his death. A pint glass of Corona that was less than half-full and an empty bottle of Stella Artois were also found close to the body. Authorities found a prescription bottle of Zolpidem - generic Ambien - on his dresser. Also present was a journal with a biography that was handwritten but not dated. "Autopsy findings are characteristic of suicidal hanging", deputy medical examiner Dr. Christopher Rogers' report reads.

An autopsy released in the U.S. tonight shows the Linkin Park singer had the cocktail in his system at the time of his 20 July death.

'There was a history of suicidal ideation'.


When police searched Bennington's home and possessions, they found pieces of fingernail underneath his iPhone and on a bedroom table.

Talinda added Chester was now in an outpatient treatment program. Speaking with Rolling Stone, Bennington's Dead by Sunrise band mate Ryan Shuck says that a month prior to his death, Chester had been sober for six months.

She said: "I'm showing this so that you know that depression doesn't have a face or a mood".
