Heroin, coke in Carrie’s system
“Star Wars” icon Carrie Fisher had heroin, cocaine, alcohol and other drugs in her system when she died last year, autopsy documents revealed Monday.
“The exposure to cocaine took place sometime approximately in the last 72 hours of the sample that was obtained,” according to a Los Angeles County coroner’s report.
It was also unclear when the heroin was taken.
Pathologists also found that Fisher, 60, had other opiates and MDMA, also known as ecstasy, in her body at the time of her death.
In addition, she’d been taking Prozac, Abilify and Lamictal under prescription, according to the report. Fisher had also ingested oxycodone without a prescription.
The actress went into cardiac arrest while on a flight from London to Los Angeles on Dec. 23. She died four days later.
“Ms. Fisher suffered what appeared to be a cardiac arrest on the airplane accompanied by vomiting and with a history of sleep apnea,” according to the coroner.
“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,” the coroner reported.
Daughter Billie Lourd said drugs must have played in role in her mom’s passing.
“My mom battled drug addiction and mental illness her entire life. She ultimately died of it,” Lourd told People magazine.
