Scott Weiland’s Final Hours Detailed in Police Report
A recently released search warrant filed by the Bloomington Police Department has detailed the scene in the tour bus bedroom where Scott Weiland was found dead last week. In addition to the two baggies of a white substance that later tested positive as cocaine, authorities found a number of medications, according to Billboard, including the sedative Lunesta, anti-anxiety drug Klonopin, Viagra, sedative Dalmane, narcotic Buprenex and the antipsychotic Geodon.
Elsewhere on the bus, police confiscated other suspicious items, including a clear baggie containing a “green leafy substance” in the cabin. They also detailed the baggie of cocaine they discovered in the bunk of bassist Tommy Black.
An affidavit also explained how authorities learned of Weiland’s death. Bloomington Officer George Harms was assigned to the “follow-up investigation of a possible overdose” that occurred in a hotel parking lot at around 8:21 p.m. local time last Thursday. He found Weiland’s body in the bus’ bedroom.
The affidavit went on to say that Weiland’s wife had alerted a friend that she had not been able to reach her husband. The friend checked on the singer in the bus bedroom and found him unresponsive and subsequently called 911. Weiland was pronounced dead at 8:37 p.m. “Located in the bedroom in plain view was an unknown white substance packaged in baggies,” the affidavit reads. “The packaging is common with the way narcotics are packaged.”
News of Weiland’s death spread Thursday, though his cause of death has not yet been confirmed. Since his death, his former bandmates in Stone Temple Pilots and Velvet Revolver have posted tributes to the singer. Mary Forsberg Weiland, his ex-wife and mother to his two children, also wrote a public note asking people not to “glorify this tragedy.”
