Now, six months later Carrie Fisher autopsy report reveals combo of drugs in her system. Read on…
All we can say is that Carrie Fisher autopsy report reveals a mix of drugs that is not something anyone could handle. This is someone who has years of using experience.
The Associated Press reported:
Fisher had cocaine, heroin and ecstasy in her system. However, it’s unclear what impact the substances might have had on her death. Though, the corners report previously stated that Carrie died from a combination of Sleep Apnea, drug Use, other factors, says coroner.
The full autopsy report, released Monday, states:
“At this time the significance of cocaine cannot be established in this case.”
What is interesting is that the report pin points that Fisher had taken the cocaine three days before had suffered a heart attack on a transatlantic flight on Dec. 23. She died four days later. While heroin is detectable in the system for a period of time after ingesting, it’s unclear when that and the ecstasy were taken.
The results come from toxicology screenings that were taken when Fisher arrived at the hospital. Los Angeles County coroners had previously stated drug use was a factor in the actress’s death. Specifically, the autopsy said it was due to a combination of factors including sleep apnea and “other conditions: atherosclerotic heart disease, drug use.”
“Ms. Fisher suffered what appeared to be a cardiac arrest on the airplane accompanied by vomiting and with a history of sleep apnea. Based on the available toxicological information, we cannot establish the significance of the multiple substances that were detected in Ms. Fisher’s blood and tissue, with regard to the cause of death.”
Fisher’s daughter, Billie Lourd, said in a statement given to People Magazine:
“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,”
