SCOTT WEILAND's Toxicology Results May Not Be Available For Four To Eight Weeks

It could take "four to eight weeks" before the Hennepin County medical examiner's office has details of toxicology results from late STONE TEMPLE PILOTS singer Scott Weiland's autopsy to release to the public, Bloomington Deputy Police Chief Denis Otterness has told StarTribune.com.

In other news, Weiland's THE WILDABOUTS bandmate Tommy Black was released from jail on Friday after being arrested the day before on suspicion of having a small amount of cocaine.

An additional amount of the drug was located in the bedroom of the tour bus where Weiland, 48, was found dead.

Weiland was on tour with THE WILDABOUTS in Minnesota when he was found unresponsive shortly before 9:00 p.m. They had been scheduled to perform Thursday night at the Medina Entertainment Center in Medina, Minnesota. However, that concert was canceled more than a week earlier because of slow ticket sales, according to StarTribune.com. The group was set to perform in Rochester on Friday (December 4) at the Wicked Moose.

Weiland's long history of substance and alcohol abuse has been well documented over the years.

Both of Scott's former bands, STONE TEMPLE PILOTS and VELVET REVOLVER, issued statements on his passing, while musicians and fans around the world have also posted tributes.

Former STONE TEMPLE PILOTS manager Steve Stewart, who handled the band from 1990 to 2000, told Alternative Nation, "What always struck me most about Scott was how alone he really was. For all the people and things he had around, I always felt he was somehow separated from people… I thought he’d always beat his demons, and maybe in the end, he finally did. My prayers are with his family and children."
