Cocaine, heroin among drugs found in Carrie Fisher's system


Following the report, the actress's daughter, #BillieLourd, and her brother, Todd Fisher, released statements. Her mother, longtime movie star Debbie Reynolds, died the following day.

The officials said they could not pinpoint the time of exposure to the small amount of heroin found in Fisher's system, along with the MDMA and other opiates.

Fisher died from "sleep apnea and other undetermined factors", and a history of heart disease, the report states. The report did conclude that Fisher likely used cocaine three days prior to the December 23 flight. "Based on the available toxicological information, we can not establish the significance of the multiple substances that were detected in Ms. Fisher's blood and tissue, with regard to her death".

Investigators could not determine what impact the drugs had on Fisher's death or when she had taken them. "Ms. Fisher suffered what appeared to be a cardiac arrest on [a December 23 flight] accompanied by vomiting and with a history of sleep apnea. Based on the available toxicological information, we can not establish the significance of the multiple substances that were detected in Ms. Fisher's blood and tissue, with regard to the cause of death", the report states.

"Without her drugs, maybe she would have left long ago". "I know my mum, she'd want her death to encourage people to be open about their struggles".

Fisher fell ill on a plane ride to Los Angeles before she was rushed to a nearby hospital because of a cardiac arrest.

The actress was treated at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center at the time of her death.

Talking to People magazine, the 24-year-old actress said: "My mom battled drug addiction and mental illness her entire life". He pointed to Fisher's smoking habit as another contributing cause to her heart problems.
