Soundgarden frontman Chris Cornell had several prescription drugs in his system but they didn’t contribute to his death in a Detroit hotel room – autopsy reports released on Friday showed.
Toxicology tests showed the presence of barbiturates – caffeine and lorazepam – also known as Ativan – for relief of anxiety.
The report also lists naloxone – an anti-opioid drug and a decongestant.
‘These drugs did not contribute to the cause of death’ said Dr Theodore Brown – assistant Wayne County medical examiner.
The reports confirm that Cornell (52) hanged himself after a concert on 17 May.
He was found by a security guard who kicked in two locked doors at his hotel room on 18 May.
