Details of Chester Bennington's autopsy have been released, and reveal that the Linkin Park frontman had alcohol - but not drugs - in his system at the time of death.

Bennington died in July and his death was ruled as suicide by hanging, but now a new report first published by TMZ gives details on his surroundings when his body was found.

The police officer who found him said that there was an empty bottle of Stella Artois in the room, as well as half a glass of Corona and half a generic Ambien (sleeping tablet) pill.

A handwritten journal was also found, but no suicide note.

Bennington's wife Talinda had told the authorities that he had previously attempted suicide in 2006, when he had been drinking heavily and left the house with a gun. She also said that he had been in an outpatient treatment program relating to alcohol abuse and reports from friends suggest that his sobriety was an ongoing battle.
