UPDATE: Bennington tested "presumptive positive" for ecstasy in one test, but two subsequent tests did not detect the drug. It was concluded that drugs did not play a part in his death.

Linkin Park singer Chester Bennington committed suicide in July, and now his autopsy report has been released.

According to the results obtained by "Extra," Bennigton had a small amount of alcohol and ecstasy in his system at the time of his death.

Law enforcement had reportedly found a prescription bottle of generic Ambien, an empty bottle of Stella Artois, and a half-full pint glass of Corona in his Palos Verdes home, where he hanged himself.

In September, Bennington’s widow Talinda posted one of the very last images of him alive to raise awareness of depression. She tweeted, “This was days b4 my husband took his own life.Suicidal thoughts were there,but you'd. Never kmow.”

Bennington died at the age of 41, just two months after his friend Chris Cornell died.

TMZ was first to report the results.
