Posted June 17, 2017

Star Wars actor Carrie Fisher died from sleep apnoea and had drugs in her system, according to a Los Angeles coroner's report obtained by U.S. media.

Fisher, 60, was taken ill on a flight to Los Angeles from London, where she was filming for British sitcom Catastrophe, in December.

Her official death certificate, revealed this past January, states her cause of death as "cardiac arrest", but a report - released today by the coroner - reveals a number of factors contributed to her medical emergency. Additionally, there were signs of drug use, but it could not be determined if drugs directly contributed to her death.
