(TMZ) Chris Cornell had several prescription drugs in his system when he hanged himself in a Detroit hotel room according to the toxicology report.
According to the report, obtained by TMZ, the singer had Naloxone (Narcan), Butalbital (sedative), Lorazepam (Ativan), Pseudoephedrine (decongestant) and barbiturates in his system at the time of death. It appears Chris had taken 4 (1 mg) Lorazepam tablets.
Vicky claims she was on the phone with Chris a half hour before his death when he began speaking in tones she hadn’t heard since he was addicted to Oxycontin 14 years ago. She was so alarmed by the slurring and tone she asked Chris’ bodyguard to break his hotel door down.
Cops observed fresh track marks on Chris’ arm. According to the tox report, he had 4 needle puncture wounds on his left arm, but it appears the marks were from EMTs administering Narcan to counteract an opiate OD.
Family sources tell us Vicky and others are angry the medical examiner “jumped to conclusions” Chris committed suicide. They believe he was so high on drugs he did not really form an intent to kill himself, he was out of his mind when he put the exercise belt around his neck.
