Chester Bennington's Autopsy Reveals He Had Alcohol and Ecstasy in His System

The Linkin Park frontman was discovered unresponsive at his Palos Verdes Estates home in California on 20 July (17), and officials subsequently ruled the 41-year-old had died by hanging. His wife Talinda said the former rocker, who had a history of depression, would pick at his nails when he was anxious. Now, TMZ has revealed the details of the singer's autopsy report and, perhaps unsurprisingly, his body contained more than one substance at the time of his death. A prescription bottle of Zolpidem (the generic version of the sleep aid Ambien) and a small amount of beer was also found in Bennington's bedroom.

Chester Bennington's autopsy shows he had alcohol and ecstasy in his system when he hanged himself.

The report also found nothing out of the ordinary in the autopsy showing that Bennington was a relatively healthy man. 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. The world continues to mourn the loss of a true musical original and, by all accounts, a caring and loving family man as well.
