Milwaukee: Authorities say the white supremacist who killed six people at a Sikh temple in the US this year had no drugs in his system at the time of the rampage.

A Milwaukee County toxicology report released Wednesday says Wade Michael Page did have a small amount of alcohol in his system, but the medical examiner's office says alcohol is sometimes a by-product of decomposition. It's unclear whether Page had been drinking before the 5 August attack.

The 40-year-old Page killed six Sikh worshippers before killing himself. FBI officials say he acted alone and that his motive remains unclear.

An autopsy report says Page's many tattoos included skulls and crossbones on one forearm and the word "Suffer" across his shoulders.
