Chester Bennington’s widow Talinda has requested certain details be left out of her husband’s autopsy report.
According to TMZ, Talinda’s lawyer, Ed McPherson make contact with the County lawyer for the Coroner on Friday, requesting the information be redacted.
At first the Coroner’s lawyer refused. However, McPherson continued to please his case, making the argument ‘martial privlege’ should ensure the information remains protected.
Eventually, the Coroners lawyer agreed with McPherson, taking the passage in question out of the the official autopsy report.
Fact: Mental illness took @ChesterBe away from his family, his friends, his band, and us. It does not mean something was wrong with him – it was not his fault. In fact, he was one of the most kind, generous, and inspiring people around. We miss him greatly. #FuckDepression pic.twitter.com/kfQttQ3DdD
