It's been nearly six months since we lost soon-to-be Disney Legend Carrie Fisher and today we are finally learning more about what caused the actress and writer's death. As the Hollywood Reporter notes, the coroner's office has said Fisher died from sleep apnea and a combination of other factors. However, they were unable to determine which of those "other factors" directly caused her death.
Some of the potential factors listed include fatty tissue buildup on Fisher's arteries and signs that suggest she had taken multiple drugs before her death. Carrie's brother, Todd Fisher, told THR said there were no revelations in the report, which he says his family did not want in the first place. "We're not enlightened. There's nothing about this that is enlightening," he said. Additionally, he told the site, "I am not shocked that part of her health was affected by drugs," noting prescriptions she took to treat her mental health.
As mentioned, Carrie Fisher will be inducted as a Disney Legend at next month's D23 Expo.
UPDATE: According to the coroner report, "urine toxicology on admission to the hospital was positive for cocaine, methadone, ethanol, and opiates." It is unclear how these drugs contributed to her death.
