Weiland has had well-documented substance abuse issues, previously kicking a serious heroin addiction. TMZ obtained audio of the emergency call and dispatchers said the singer was not breathing and his immediate cause of death was cardiac arrest. The underlying cause of death has not been determined yet.

TMZ claims that multiple sources in the music industry told them that friends were worrying in the days leading up to his death that he was deep into crack cocaine use and might have died of an overdose. Weiland's wife refutes those reports saying he has been sober off drugs for years, that his band has a pact to do no drugs on tour and he had only been drinking socially in recent years.

Update: According to local police officials, a small amount of cocaine was found in the room where Weiland's body was discovered. Additionally, another packet of cocaine was found in the bassist's bunk, who has since been arrested. All the info here.
