Chester Bennington's Autopsy Reveals Alcohol In Linkin Park Frontman's System

Chester Bennington's Autopsy Reveals Alcohol In Linkin Park Frontman's System

Forty-one-year-old Linkin Park singer Chester Bennington died earlier this year after hanging himself, widening the ongoing conversation surrounding mental health.

According to TMZ, the autopsy and toxicology results now show that he had a small amount of alcohol in his system.

Police also found pieces of fingernail underneath his phone and on a table in a bedroom - a telltale sign, as Chester's wife, Talinda, told them, that he was feeling anxious.

While there was no suicide note, police did find what they called an 'apparent biography', which was handwritten.

His wife has also said that Chester had a troubled history of depression, and had tried to commit suicide before. One particular time, in 2006, he left the house with a gun after a heavy drinking session. Talinda also said that at his time of death he had been in an outpatient treatment programme, and had told friends he'd been sober for six months.

In an emotional tribute a few months after his death, Talinda shared a video of him laughing and joking with his family, filmed just 36 hours before he took his own life. By sharing the footage she aimed to show that depression 'doesn't have a face or mood'.
