Chester Bennington's autopsy has been released.

The late Linkin Park singer, who died by suicide at age 41 in July to the mourning of fans and music lovers everywhere, was found to have had alcohol in his system when he took his own life, according to the autopsy report obtained by ET. In the report, a first blood test also found possible traces of MDMA (ecstasy) in Bennington's system, however, two subsequent tests came back negative.

Bennington was not under the influence of drugs when he died, according to the report.

Bennington died July 20, on what would have been late Soundgarden frontman Chris Cornell's 53rd birthday, who also committed suicide earlier this year.  Bennington performed at Cornell's funeral in May.

After his death, Linkin Park held a special memorial concert at Los Angeles' Hollywood Bowl, where Bennington's wife, Talinda, delivered moving remarks.
