Carrie Fisher's Autopsy Reveals Drug Cocktail

LOS ANGELES (CelebrityAccess) — The Los Angeles County coroner’s report on deceased actor Carrie Fisher detailed a comprehensive variety of drugs in her system at the time of her death.

According to the Los Angeles Times, coroners reported finding evidence of cocaine, methadone, MDMA (better known as ecstasy), alcohol and opiates in Fisher's blood after she died.

As well, the test results suggest that there was exposure to heroin, but were unable to pinpoint time and exposure, the report said.

Fisher died on Dec. 27 after suffering from a cardiac arrest. She was hospitalized four days earlier after suffering a mid-air medical emergency while returning from an overseas tour on Dec. 23rd.

Fisher's official cause of death was listed as sleep apnea with other factors.

“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,” Fisher’s daughter, Billie Lourd, told People Magazine following the actor's death. – Staff Writers
