Scott Weiland death ruled an accidental overdose

Scott Weiland’s death has been ruled an accidental overdose.

The Hennepin County Medical Examiner in Minneapolis, MN has determined that Weiland died of an accidental overdose of cocaine, ethanol and methylenedioxyamphetamine (MDA), reports Rolling Stone.

The office also noted Weiland's atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease, history of asthma and multi-substance dependence.

The singer was found dead on his tour bus in Bloomington, MN on December 3 while on the road with his group The Wildabouts, and an assortment of drugs were discovered at the scene by authorities.

Weiland’s ex-bandmates in Stone Temple Pilots and Velvet Revolver are among those who have issued personal tributes to the late frontman.

The singer’s ex-wife, Mary Forsberg Weiland, and their two teenage children published an open letter asking fans not to “glorify this tragedy.”
