Chester Bennington Toxicology Report Updated, Did Not Have Ecstasy In His System
On December 5, the autopsy and toxicology report for Linkin Park frontman Chester Bennington was released and revealed the singer to have alcohol and MDMA in his system.
While the initial report came up "presumptive positive" for MDMA, two subsequent tests were done after the initial report to reveal that Bennington did not have MDMA in his system and was not under the influence of drugs when he passed away. We updated our original report, but wanted to make sure this was seen out of respect to Chester and his loved ones.
Linkin Park's Mike Shinoda took to Twitter to break the news.
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. pic.twitter.com/MwglKqjsOc
