Chester Bennington Autopsy Report Has Been Released

Chester Bennington's autopsy report reveals the Linkin Park singer had traces of alcohol in his system at the time of death.

An autopsy revealed that Chester Bennington had alcohol in his system at the time of his death. The report, first published by TMZ, said that the singer was not under the influence of drugs at the time of his death. 
The Linkin Park frontman died of suicide by hanging this past July. The new report, which is viewable as a PDF, contains a section by the police officer who found the singer's body. 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. The officer also wrote that there was a glass of Corona less than half full, as well as an empty bottle of Stella Artois. Also present was a journal with a biography that was handwritten but not dated. There was no suicide note.
In the report, the coroner wrote, "autopsy findings are characteristic of suicidal hanging. There was a history of suicidal ideation."
TMZ reports that Bennington's wife, Talinda, had informed the authorities of the singer's previous attempt at death by suicide, including one time in 2006 when he left the house with a gun after drinking heavily. Fingernails were found underneath his iPhone, and Talinda said this was a habit he had when he was anxious. She said he was recently in an outpatient treatment program and that to her knowledge he hadn't taken antidepressants in a year.
Earlier this year, friends of Bennington told Rolling Stone that the singer had been struggling to maintain his sobriety over the past year. A month before his death, he told his friend, guitarist Ryan Shuck, that he had been sober for only six months. And when Shuck told him that he too was struggling, Bennington sent him text messages in support. "He was describing an hour-by-hour battle with addiction," Shuck said. "When I look at it now, it's horrifying. He was telling me, down to the detail, what he would do in the first hour he wanted to drink: 'I basically just take it hour-by-hour every day.'"
At the time Shuck said he knew Bennington had been drinking at the time of his death. "We don't know how much [he drank], but it doesn't take much when you're that advanced an alcoholic and an addict and you're battling to the extent he described to me," he said. "You don't need much to lose your mind for a minute."

George Michael Post Mortem Inconclusive, Chemical Tests Take a Few Wks.

An investigation into George Michael's death will continue, as no results were obtained in the first autopsy.

The Thames Valley Police revealed the news in a statement Friday.

"A post mortem examination was carried out yesterday as part of the investigation into the death of George Michael," the statement said. "The cause of death is inconclusive and further tests will now be carried out. The results of these tests are unlikely to be known for several weeks. Thames Valley Police will prepare a file for the Oxfordshire Coroner. Mr. Michael's death is still being treated as unexplained but not suspicious."

Michael's rep had said earlier this week the singer died of heart failure and passed away "peacefully." Investigators later told E! News there were no suspicious circumstances surrounding Michael's death.

The famed singer and '80s rock and pop icon died on Christmas Day at age 53. He was found lifeless in bed at the home he shared with boyfriend Fadi Fawaz.

"ITs a xmas i will never forget finding your partner dead peacefully in bed first thing in the morning.." he tweeted. "I will never stop missing you xx."

Michael received several tributes from fellow music artists, including Coldplay's Chris Martin and longtime friend Elton John.
Martin performed Michael's former band Wham!'s 1986 hit "Last Christmas" at a homeless shelter last week. John honored his late friend by opening his Las Vegas concert Wednesday with "Don't Let the Sun Go Down on Me." He and Michael released a hit duet of the ballad in 1992. John told the crowd he wished Michael was there to sing the song with him.

“As a human being he was one of the kindest, sweetest, most generous people I've ever met," he added.

Autopsy of Who Holds Blame for Trump’s Win

As someone who spent the first two decades of his life as a reluctant Alabama citizen, the mournful results of the 2016 presidential election shouldn't have surprised me. Trump supporters, you see, have been around much longer than Trump himself. Living in a bubble has a certain way of obscuring the devastating fact that Trump supporters have always been there, and now they have a world leader to call their own. They're signing your checks. They're bagging your groceries. They're filling your cavities. They're even, especially in red states like Alabama, teaching your children. 

The Media

Though the very phrase "the media" immediately conjures images of a sweaty Rudy Giuliani frothing at the mouth while blasting the very basis of journalism, the role of mainstream publications in this election simply can't be understated. At first, headlines and late-night commentary appeared to treat the former Apprentice host's bid for presidency as a joke. But as the eventual GOP nominee's appeal to large swaths of white voters became apparent, many publications and celebrity voices failed to recognize or successfully translate the very real chance of his victory. The President-elect's offensive, inflammatory, and only sometimes coded language only garnered more headlines and effectively gave him a free platform from which to spew the most divisive rhetoric in recent memory.


With less than two days to go before Election Day, FBI Director James Comey issued a letter to top congressional Republicans declaring the "conclusions that we expressed in July" regarding Clinton's emails would remain unchanged. But the damage was already done. Just days earlier, Comey had issued a vague statement to Congress alleging that "emails that appear to be pertinent to the investigation" had been discovered during a probe into former Congressman Anthony Weiner's electronic communications. The Republican nominee used Comey's initial letter as fuel for his supporters' fire, ensuring they had the word "emails" on their minds when hitting the polls. "Hillary Clinton's corruption is on a scale we have never seen before, we must not let her take her criminal scheme into the Oval Office," the GOP nominee later said at a New Hampshire rally, according to CNBC.​

Third Parties

When we publicly declare our ire for third party candidates, it's not because anyone assumes a Gary Johnson vote or a Jill Stein vote would automatically go toward Clinton in the event of their nonexistence. Instead, we find third party candidates particularly distracting in an election year of this nature because the ones most vulnerable to their campaigns, i.e. young people, are often a beacon of hope for older voters who feel abandoned by their fellow Americans. Some states, political experts argue, could have swung in Clinton's favor if the Johnson-Stein voters had instead united against the now President-elect:


The speculated involvement of Russia in the 2016 presidential election, which the Obama administration argued back in October has included a fleet of hackers intending to sway the vote by leaking documents, has perhaps been one of the most harrowing aspects of this cycle. The President-elect even openly challenged Russia to hack the country, a challenge unsurprisingly linked to his campaign's obsession with that aforementioned (and repeatedly debunked) email scandal.

White Voters

I'm a white man. Even at my lowest moments as a human being, even when life barely seems worth it, I still have it much easier than my fellow Americans of color. This is a flaw in the very idea of "America" that extends back as far as the very founding of this nation. When I picture the average Trump supporter from, say, Alabama, I imagine the guy with a What Would Jesus Do bracelet on who screamed "f*ggot!" at me the first time I painted my nails. I imagine the cop who literally accused me of hiding a dead body in my car because I "looked high." I imagine hateful white people, emboldened like no other time in American history by a campaign of division.

People Who Didn't Vote

This is a complicated one. We all have that one friend, the one who routinely shares typo-splattered memes made up of grainy photos of George Carlin and vague quotes about a broken system. The system is broken. No doubt about it. But apathy at near-anarchy levels isn't exactly helping anyone, especially voters. Sadly, some abstain from voting not by choice, but due to certain states' apparent insistence on suppressing voices which might chip away at the GOP establishment. Overly strict ID laws? Registration purges? These acts have an inarguable impact on voter turnout.

Fake News

To bring this full circle, now is the time to boldly face one of our greatest threats head-on: fake news. These are the sites (the names of which we won't plug here) with headlines like HILLARY CLINTON NOW FACING PRISON or REPUBLICAN NOMINEE SCORES MAJOR ENDORSEMENT FROM MEXICO. For anyone brave enough to still be rocking a Facebook account, you've seen this on the regular. The very definition of truth, it seems, has been shifted to mean something dangerously at odds with the previously accepted qualifications required for a "fact." The result? Damn near anything can pass for truth now, giving way to long and grueling days like this one.​

The common thread among all these factors? Fear. The President-elect has snaked his way into the White House on the momentum of a campaign dedicated to instilling palpable fear in the hearts of white America, an America seemingly fine with self-sabotage at the hands of a man who routinely dismisses climate change as a fabrication and may very well bring about the saddening normalization of outright Islamophobia. If we take a closer look at how we got here, perhaps this nation still has time to check itself before it unceremoniously wrecks itself.

The Last Night of Joey Kovar

The following is a posting from TMZ. I believe this is  the most descriptive (of the reports following his autopsy today) with the freshest information on the death of Joey kovar. Toxicology takes a few weeeks longer but knowing what the person was doing when they died tells almost or as much:

"Real World" star Joey Kovar died after taking what could turn out to be a lethal mixture of Viagra, cocaine and alcohol... law enforcement sources tell TMZ.

Our sources say ... Thursday night, just before midnight, Joey went to a woman's house in Chicago Ridge, Illinois, told her he'd been doing cocaine ... and asked her to drive him to a location where he could score more coke. The woman, Stacey Achterhof, rebuffed his request, and asked him to stay at her place.

We're told Joey, who was also fueled up on alcohol, took "some Viagra" and messed around with Stacey ... but they did not have sex. At some point Stacey fell asleep, and when she awakened early Friday morning she found Joey bleeding from the nose and ears.

Law enforcement sources tell us ... his eyes were also "blackened" -- something that frequently occurs when someone ODs.  Law enforcement sources tell us they suspect Joey had an aneurysm.

0817_joey_kovar_death_ROOM_tmzStacey was interviewed extensively by cops on Friday. We're told she says she saw Joey take Adderall and Xanax in recent weeks -- and multiple sources close to Joey tell us although they were prescribed, he often took more than called for by doctors.

There's no indication, at this point, Stacey will be charged with a crime.

As for Joey, toxicology results will take weeks, but our law enforcement sources say they believe the results will show a fatal combo of Viagra and cocaine and alcohol.

So totally unnecessary.  If this report is accurate, then it was totally accidental like most DOD’s are.  When you are talking mind altering drugs, naturally the mind is going to be the last one to know how much is too much in quantity and type.
