MILWAUKEE -

Authorities say the white supremacist who killed six people at a Sikh temple in suburban Milwaukee this summer had no drugs in his system when he committed the assaults.

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

   The report says the 40-year-old shooter had no hard drugs in his system.

   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.
