"Without the results of toxicology tests, we do not know what was going on with Chris - or if any substances contributed to his demise", Cornell family attorney Kirk Pasich argued in a statement released today.

Cornell's wife Vicky said in the statement that when she spoke to her husband after a concert in Detroit, he told her he may have taken "an extra Ativan or two" and was slurring his words. Detroit police spokesman Dan Donakowski said that officers were called to Cornell's hotel around midnight by a friend of the musician and found Cornell "laying in his bathroom, unresponsive and he had passed away".
