Chester Bennington’s autopsy: alcohol in his system, not MDMA
Chester Bennington’s autopsy report has been released and it shows Linkin Park frontman had a trace amount of alcohol in his system when he hanged himself back in July this year. Even if somebody talked about drug addiction, his bandmate Mike Shinoda has always denied that drugs played any part in his death.
According to the autopsy and toxicology results, based on one test Bennington’s blood was “presumptive positive” for MDMA, the psychoactive drug commonly known as ecstasy. Two subsequent tests did not detect the drug, and the ultimate conclusion was Chester was not under the influence of drugs when he died.
What’s sure is that the singer had a small amount of alcohol in his system at the time of his death. Authorities are also said to have found a bottle of prescription drug Zolpidem on Bennington’s dresser.
