“Suspicious Substances” Found on Scott Weiland’s Tour Bus

Okay, so there’s not a tour bus in the world that hasn’t been home to “suspicious substances” and drugs. But not every tour bus is the scene of a death of a famous singer.

A search of Scott Weiland’s bus has turned up some incriminating stuff. From Billboard:

According to the Hennepin County warrant and affidavit, Weiland’s body was found “alone in a bedroom” on the bus where an “unknown white substance packaged in baggies” was “located in the bedroom in plain view.”

The warrant specifies that the “2 clean baggies with white substance” were packaged “common with the way narcotics are packaged.” Police separately confirmed cocainewas found on the tour bus.

The authorities also seized a “baggie with green leafy substance” as well as Viagra, a painkiller, sleeping pills and Ziprasidone, an FDA-approved pill used to treat symptoms of bipolar disorder. Weiland was diagnosed with bipolar disorder in 2001. All the pills, as well as the bags of the white substance, were found in a bedroom on the tour bus — presumably the one where Weiland’s body was located.

The investigation continues. Meanwhile in Australia, Chris Cornell offered this tribute to Scott.
