The Results of Chester Bennington’s Autopsy Have Been Released and…

He’d been prescribed anti-depressants in the past, but had not been using them for the better part of a year. In fact, the tests says that Chester was NOT under the effects of any drugs at the time of his death. Chester was found hanging in his bedroom by a black Hugo Boss belt on the morning of July 20. Police also found an empty bottle of Stella Artois and a half-drunk pint of Corona. Shards of Chester’s fingernails were found under his iPhone and on his bedroom dresser, apparently part of habit Chester had of picking at his fingernails when he was anxious. Again, this is nothing new; Chester was upfront about his mental demons. In an interview with Chester’s wife, Talinda, she confirmed that Chester had fallen off the wagon in 2006 and left the house with a gun one night. The report doesn’t mention anything that might have been found in his bloodstream. That incident was settled peacefully and without incident. There was no actual suicide note, but police say he did leave a handwritten “biography.” We’ve yet to see that. The toxicology report revealed that Chester had a small amount of MDMA (Ecstasy) in his system along with a bit of alcohol, most like from the half-empty bottle of vodka that was found nearby. She also confirmed that Chester was in an outpatient treatment program and had a long history of depression punctuated with occasional thoughts of suicide. Via TMZ In his pocket was the boarding pass from the flight he’d taken from Phoenix the night before. Searching the house, there was a bottle of Zolpidem, a generic version of the sleep aid Ambien, on his dresser. …there’s really not much we didn’t expect. Talinda and his kids were still in Arizona at the time of his death.
