Carrie Fisher Had Cocaine & Other Drugs in Her System When She Died

More details about Carrie Fisher‘s death have been revealed in the toxicology report.

The late Star Wars actress has cocaine and other drugs in her system when she died in December 2016. The report showed that she may have taken cocaine three days before she boarded the December 23 flight that she fell ill on.

Traces of heroin and ecstasy were also found in Carrie‘s system, though it’s not known when she may have taken those drugs. It’s also not known what the impact of the drugs had on her death, according to the Associated Press.

Carrie Fisher Cause of Death Revealed in Autopsy Results

Carrie Fisher‘s cause of death has been revealed following the results of her autopsy.

According to AP, the Los Angeles County coroner’s office ruled atherosclerotic heart disease and sleep apnea to have contributed to Carrie‘s untimely passing last year.

Although an exact cause could not be pinpointed, it was found that there was a buildup of fatty tissue in the walls of her arteries.

Investigators also found signs that Carrie had taken multiple drugs but could not determine whether they contributed to her death and did not say if those were the drugs she took prescribed by doctors to treat her mental health conditions.

“I would tell you, from my perspective that there’s certainly no news that Carrie did drugs. I am not shocked that part of her health was affected by drugs,” her brother Todd Fisher said.

Her daughter Billie also released a statement following the autopsy results.

Carrie‘s manner of death will be listed as undetermined.

Carrie Fisher's Daughter Billie Lourd Speaks Out After Autopsy Results Revealed

Carrie Fisher‘s autopsy results have been revealed and her daughter Billie Lourd is speaking out.

According to the Los Angeles County Coroner’s Office, the Star Wars actress suffered from atherosclerotic heart disease and “drug use” prior to her passing last year.

Carrie‘s daughter Billie is hoping that her passing can shed light on drug addiction and mental illness.

“My mom battled drug addiction and mental illness her entire life. She ultimately died of it. She was purposefully open in all of her work about the social stigmas surrounding these diseases,” Billie told People.

She added, “She talked about the shame that torments people and their families confronted by these diseases. I know my Mom, she’d want her death to encourage people to be open about their struggles. Seek help, fight for government funding for mental health programs. Shame and those social stigmas are the enemies of progress to solutions and ultimately a cure. Love you Momby.”

Our thoughts continue to be with Carrie, Billie and their family and friends.
