The Associated Press has obtained audio of the 911 call in the death of Chester Bennington.

Palos Verdes, Calif. police released the audio of the call where a driver was told by a housekeeper that she found the Linkin Park singer's body hanging in a bedroom. The AP describes, "loud sobs can be heard in the background of the call." 

Yesterday, the Los Angeles County coroner ruled Bennington's July 20th death a suicide by hanging after a July 21 autopsy. The AP adds that, "no drugs were evident in the singer's room."

Tributes have been pouring in for the late singer including a statement from his Linkin Park band mates along with an in-concert tribute from Corey Taylor.
