New details are still emerging about the circumstances surrounding Chris Cornell’s sudden death this week, which the medical examiner has ruled a suicide, even if his family think medication may have been involved with that choice. Today, a police report obtained by the Detroit News indicates that medication may have indeed been involved.

As Vicky Cornell said in her statement, she spoke with her husband about an hour before his death in an uneasy conversation where he said he may have taken “an extra Ativan or two” and was repeatedly slurring his words and repeating the phrase “I am just tired,” before hanging up abruptly. Following the call, Vicky called Chris’ bodyguard, Martin Kirsten, around 12:15 AM and asked him to check in on her husband in his hotel room.
