Now, almost six months later, the toxicology report detailing the conditions of his death and autopsy findings has been released. The findings show "a trace amount" of alcohol in the singer's system when he died. TMZ originally reported that trace amounts of MDMA were found in a blood test but two recent tests disproved that.
There was also a prescription bottle for Zolpidem, the generic version of Ambien, and a small amount of beer in his room. The findings also corroborate the deputy medical examiner, Dr. Christopher Roger's, report that says, "Autopsy findings are characteristic of suicidal hanging. There was a history of suicidal ideation [in Bennington]."
Depression was no stranger to Chester and the singer struggled with it and alcoholism his whole life. In 2006 he attended rehab and even hit six months sober at one point in 2017. Chester's career spanned decades first gaining him recognition as a vocalist following the release of Linkin Park's debut album, Hybrid Theory.
A tribute was held in honor of Chester on October 27 and artists like Blink-182, No Doubt and many more all came to pay their respects. He left behind a wife and six children.
