Autopsy Report: Chester Bennington Had NO Ecstasy In His System When He Died!

Unlike gossip site TMZ reported, Linkin Park’s late singer Chester Bennington did not have any MDMA in his system when he died by suicide this past July. According to the false reports, an antibody-based test called ELISA showed signs of the drugs in the singer’s body. Linkin Park’s Mike Shinoda took to Twitter yesterday to correct this:

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.

Spreading false information like this is incredibly sad and irresponsible towards Chester Bennington’s family. Sensationalism sucks, so lets stick to the facts instead. 

Linkin Park will release One More Light Live, a live album recorded during the band’s last tour with Bennington in Europe, on December 15th. You can pre-order it HERE. Watch the emotional music video for “Crawling (Live)” below.
