SOUNDGARDEN SINGER CHRIS CORNELL HAD A NUMBER OF PRESCRIPTION DRUGS IN HIS SYSTEM AT THE TIME OF HIS DEATH, ACCORDING TO A COMPLETED TOXICOLOGY REPORT RELEASED BY MICHIGAN’S WAYNE COUNTY MEDICAL EXAMINER ON FRIDAY JUNE 2ND. BUT ASSISTANT MEDICAL EXAMINER THEODORE BROWN WROTE IN HIS POST MORTEM REPORT THAT CORNELL DIED FROM HANGING AND THAT “DRUGS DID NOT CONTRIBUTE TO THE CAUSE OF DEATH.” HE ADDED, “BASED ON THE CIRCUMSTANCES SURROUNDING THIS DEATH AND THE AUTOPSY FINDINGS, THE MANNER OF DEATH IS SUICIDE.” THE EXAMINER NOTED THAT CORNELL’S INJURIES “WERE ALL CONSISTENT WITH HANGING, PARTIALLY SUSPENDED BY THE RESISTANCE EXERCISE BAND.” REPORTS THAT CORNELL HAD NEEDLE MARKS ON HIS LEFT ARM PROVED TRUE — BUT THE PUNCTURES WERE FROM EMTS WHO ADMINISTERED NARCAN IN AN ATTEMPT TO REVIVE HIM.
