Heroin, Cocaine and Esctasy Found in Toxicoloy Report for Carrie Fisher
The toxicology report for Carrie Fisher of Star Wars fame, has been released, detailing Heroin, Cocaine and trace amounts of Ecstasy found in her system at her time of death. Medical professionals determined that Fisher had methadone, ethanol and opiate present in her body, in addition to an anti-depressant and antihistamine.
Police estimate that Carrie Fisher, who passed on in December at the age of 60 years-old, was exposed to cocaine approximately 72 hours before her death. While doctors cannot establish whether the drugs were the cause of her death, they do know that sleep apnea and other factors did play a role.
Carrie’s daughter, Billie Lourd, spoke to the press: “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 went on to say, “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.”
