Chester Bennington Autopsy Reports: An American singer, songwriter, and actor had traces of alcohol in his system when he hanged himself, according to his autopsy and toxicology reports. He was dead at his age 41 (20 Jul 2017), this year. He took his own life by hanging at his home in Palos Verdes Estates, California, and according to reports obtained by TMZ.com, the star had a “trace amount” of alcohol in his blood at the time of his death.
According to the documents, Chester’s blood was also “presumptive positive” for the drug ecstasy after one test, although two further tests did not detect the substance, and so the ultimate conclusion was that the musician was not under the influence of the drug when he passed away.
But, the authorities found a less-than half-full pint glass of Corona and an empty bottle of Stella Artois beer in the bedroom where he took his life in July.
A prescription bottle was found on his nightstand, however it was concluded that Bennington had no drugs in his system at the time of his death. He was in an outpatient treatment program before his death, per the site.

While live Linkin Park album is being released in memory of the band’s frontman.
