Chester Bennington

Chester Bennington's autopsy report has been released.

According to the document obtained by TMZ, a small amount of both alcohol and MDMA (ecstasy) were present in the Linkin Park singer's body when he committed suicide on July 20. Police also found a prescription bottle of Zolpidem (generic Ambien) on the dresser.

In the room where Chester was found, authorities found a half-empty pint of Corona and empty bottle of Stella Artois. The 41-year-old still had his boarding pass in his pocket from his flight from Phoenix to LAX the day before.

There were pieces of fingernail lingering underneath the celeb's iPhone — which his wife, Talinda, told cops was a habit of Chester's whenever he felt anxious.

The evidence also mentions there were handwritten and typed "apparent biographies" found in the nightstands, but no suicide note.

We'll keep you posted if any other news of the musician's death comes to light — but in the meantime, our hearts are with Chester's loved ones during this tragic time.

The 15-year-old is clearly trying to make a difference as he appears solo in the first vid, sits down with his mother, the rocker's first wife Samantha, in the second, and discusses suicide warning signs with local therapist Angelica Guajardo in the third. As this can't be an easy topic for Draven to discuss, we couldn't be prouder of the teen for lending his voice to such an important cause.
