New details have emerged regarding Scott Weiland’s untimely death at the age of 48 on Dec. 3. The former Stone Temple Pilots frontman was found dead on his tour bus prior to a scheduled performance, and a search warrant released by Bloomington, MN police now confirms that a variety of substances surrounded the rocker in his final hours.

According to the Hennepin County search warrant and affidavit obtained by Billboard, Weiland was found “alone in a bedroom” in which an “unknown white substance packaged in baggies” was located “in plain view.” Furthermore, a “baggie with green leafy substance,” Viagra, sleeping pills, a painkiller and Ziprasidone were also found on the bus.

A friend called 9-1-1 after finding Weiland unresponsive, and the singer was pronounced dead at 10:27 PM after police and paramedics arrived. Police have confirmed that cocaine was found on the tour bus.

A toxicology report will not be made available for multiple weeks, although Weiland reportedly died of a cardiac arrest. Click here to read about Weiland’s most powerful song ever.
