Mike Shinoda On Chester Bennington Autopsy: He Wasn’t On Ecstasy

Mike Shinoda has released a statement revealing that TMZ’s earlier report claiming Chester Bennington had ecstasy (MDMA) in his system at the time of his death was untrue. The report claimed that Chester had the illicit drug in his system, which we now know was not the case.

The updated report from TMZ clarifies that the ultimate conclusion ruled that Chester wasn’t under the influence of drugs at the time of his death.

“According to the¬†autopsy and toxicology results, obtained by TMZ, the Linkin Park singer’s blood also tested “presumptive positive” for MDMA (ecstasy) … based on one test. Two subsequent tests did not detect the drug, and the ultimate conclusion was Chester was not under the influence of drugs when he died.”

Mike Shinoda weighed in on the story and shared the following:

“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.”
