TMZ have obtained Chester Bennington’s autopsy and toxicology report, revealing that ecstasy and alcohol were present in the body of the late singer on the night of his passing.
Bennington’s body was found in his home on July 20th and his death was ruled a suicide by hanging. Authorities also found a prescription bottle of Zolpidem (a generic Ambien used to treat insomnia) and, a glass of Corona and an empty bottle of Stella Artois near his body that night.

According to the autopsy and subsequent toxicology reports, there were trace amounts of alcohol in system, while one test indicated he tested “presumptive positive” for MDMA, more commonly known as ecstasy. Two further tests found no trace of the drug, ultimately coming to the conclusion that Chester was not under the influence of drugs or alcohol at the time of his death.
