Toxicology Report: Chris Cornell Had Multiple Prescription Drugs in His System at the Time of His Death

  • Axl Rosenberg

TMZ claims to have obtained the toxicology report for the recently deceased Chris Cornell:

“According to the report… 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.”

Cornell’s widow, Vicky, responded with the following statement:

“Many of us who know Chris well, noticed that he wasn’t himself during his final hours and that something was very off. We have learned from this report that several substances were found in his system. After so many years of sobriety, this moment of terrible judgement seems to have completely impaired and altered his state of mind.

“Something clearly went terribly wrong and my children and I are heartbroken and are devastated that this moment can never be taken back. We very much appreciate all of the love we have received during this extremely difficult time and are dedicated to helping others in preventing this type of tragedy.”

Vicky, you may recall, suspected that drugs had been involved in her husband’s death from the get-go.

Not sure what else there is to say here. This blows. That’s all.
