Linkin Park singer Chester Bennington's autopsy has revealed that he had "traces of alcohol" in his body at the time of his death, reports said on Tuesday. 

According to documents by TMZ, 'Castle of Glass' hit-maker had a "trace amount" of alcohol in his blood right after he committed suicide. 

The report also showed that his blood was "presumptive positive" for the drug ecstasy after one test, although two further tests did not detect the substance, reports said. 

The Linkin Park singer had hanged himself in his home at Los Angeles, a half-empty bottle of alcohol was found close to his body. 

The singer also still had his boarding pass with him from his last flight home when he died.

His wife had told officials earlier that Bennington, 41, would often have suicidal thoughts after a few drinks and but was sober for six months before his death. 

In 2006, the singer had left the house with a shotgun with thoughts to kill himself after he got drunk, his wife had said.  

Meanwhile, it was recently revealed the 'Numb' singer will leave some assets, directly to his wife Talinda Bennington, whilst the rest of his estate will go to the Chester and Talinda Bennington Family Trust.
