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. TMZ reported in October that nearly the entirety of his estate will be passed down to Talinda and his children, three of whom he shared with her and three from previous marriages. A dresser in the room contained a prescription for generic Ambien with one pill broken in half; the section that says who the prescription was made out to was blacked out prior to publication.

In the report, the coroner wrote, "autopsy findings are characteristic of suicidal hanging".
