Yesterday, Chester Bennington’s official autopsy report was published by TMZ. According to this report, Chester had alcohol in his system and also he blood tested “presumptive positive” for MDMA (ecstasy) in one test.

Today, Mike Shinoda has shared an explanation on Twitter and he reacted strongly to this autopsy report. He said:

“Just clearing this up: TMZ erroneously printed CB had MDMA in his system when he passed. That was incorrect, they misread the report. They have since corrected their piece, see below. I hope other publications have the decency to do the same.

Chester’s wife, Talinda Bennington spoke about it on her Twitter page:

“Fun fact- When your husband dies by suicide, the LA County Coroner’s office will PARAPHRASE your private conversation with them to dramatize and sensationalize the story and then SCUMBAG FILTH like TMZ post it for the world to feast on. It was redacted to protect all the kids!!”


Then, Alternative Nation says that TMZ updated their report like follows:

“TMZ have updated their story, saying the autopsy shows that Chester Bennington had alcohol in his system at the time of his death. The toxicology results, obtained by TMZ, also reveal that the Linkin Park singer’s blood tested “presumptive positive” for MDMA, otherwise known as ecstasy, based on 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. Authorities found a prescription bottle of Zolpidem on his dresser. There was also a pint glass of Corona, which was less than half full, and an empty bottle of Stella Artois.”
