TMZ: Chester Bennington's autopsy shows traces of alcohol

TMZ has learned that Linkin Park singer Chester Bennington's autopsy showed he had a trace amount of alcohol in his system when he died.

According to the autopsy and toxicology results, obtained by TMZ, Bennington's blood also tested "presumptive positive" for MDMA (ecstasy) based on one test. TMZ reports two subsequent tests did not detect the drug and the ultimate conclusion was the singer was not under the influence of drugs when he died.

TMZ says authorities found a prescription bottle of Zolpidem, which is the generic form of Ambien on his dresser. There was also a pint glass of Corona, which was less than half full and an empty bottle of Stella Artois, according to TMZ. 

Bennington committed suicide on July 20. He was 41 years old. TMZ reports that there was no suicide note, but police found an "apparent biography."
