911 Transcript: Rocker Scott Weiland Found ‘Stiff’ On Bus
BLOOMINGTON (AP) — A 911 transcript reveals the moment when Scott Weiland's bandmates found the former Stone Temple Pilots frontman's body on his tour bus in suburban Minneapolis last month.
Weiland died of a toxic combination of drugs and alcohol. He was 48.
According to the transcript, an unidentified caller tells a Bloomington 911 dispatcher that Weiland was "stiff" and "not moving."
A Bloomington police report says Weiland's tour manager, Aaron Mohler, found Weiland on the bus on Dec. 3 and could not wake him. The report says Mohler then called drummer Joseph Castillo, who couldn't find a pulse on Weiland.
Weiland's band Scott Weiland & the Wildabouts had been scheduled to play in Medina, on Dec. 3, but the show had been canceled due to poor ticket sales.
