TMZ has updated its initial report about ecstasy in the system by saying Bennington’s blood “tested 'presumptive positive' for ecstasy in one test. Two subsequent tests did not detect the drug, and the ultimate conclusion was Chester was not under the influence of drugs when he died."
Chester Bennington had small amount of alcohol and traces of ecstasy in his system when he hanged himself on July 20th.
TMZ got the official autopsy and toxicology results, which say that investigators found a prescription bottle of generic Ambien on his dresser. There was also a half-full pint glass of Corona and an empty bottle of Stella Artois.
Police also found pieces of fingernail underneath his iPhone and on a table in the bedroom. Chester's wife, Talinda, told police he would remove parts of his nails when he was anxious. The report also states that she said Chester had a history of depression and previous suicide attempts -- including one in 2006 when he left the house with a gun after drinking heavily.
Dr. Christopher Rogers, deputy medical examiner at the Los Angeles Coroner's Office, wrote in the report, "Autopsy findings are characteristic of suicidal hanging. There was a history of suicidal ideation."
