According to the transcript obtained by the Associated Press, an unidentified caller told the dispatcher Weiland was "'stiff" and "not moving."

"I think he's dead," the caller said. "No, he's not breathing."

A Bloomington police report says Weiland's tour manager, Aaron Mohler, found Weiland on the bus on December 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, Minnesota, that night, but the show had been canceled due to poor ticket sales.
