Five months after Chester Bennington’s shocking death, the autopsy report on his body has finally been released in public.

In the copy of the report which was uploaded by entertainment website TMZ, it showed that the Linkin Park frontman was neither under the influence of alcohol nor drugs at the time of his death, although he had a small amount of alcohol in his system.

Bennington was found hanging in his home in Palos Verdes Estates, California last July 20.

Authorities later ruled out foul play and concluded the American singer-songwriter took his own life. He is believed to have been suffering from depression before his death.

The report also revealed the 41-year-old musician did test “presumptive positive” for ecstasy, but two subsequent tests failed to detect the drugs.

Also stated in the documents were the things found near his body which include “a prescription bottle of Zolpidem, a generic Ambien, a pint glass of Corona and an empty bottle of Stella Artois”.

His wife, Talinda Bennington, according to the report, told the authorities her husband “would have suicidal ideations after consuming alcohol” and even threatened to commit suicide back in 2006.

An “apparent biography” written by Bennington himself was also found in the bathroom.

Bennington’s death occurred on what would have been the 53rd birthday of Chris Cornell, the Soundgarden’s vocalist who also took his own life two months earlier.
