Carrie Fisher’s death has been linked to sleep apnea and other causes including drug use. This is according to the listing released on Friday by the Los Angeles County coroner’s office. A number of the top news reporters went after some officials working with the office seeking to understand more. Unfortunately, the officials declined to comment. A statement releases after described the manner of death as undetermined.
The released report has been described by top analysts as vague especially in terms of role the drugs played in the actor’s death. Billie Lourd, Fisher’s daughter issued her statement to People magazine Friday night. She cited that her mother had indeed died from substance use.
While speaking to journalists, Lourd said, “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.”
Todd Fisher, who is the late star’s brother, dismissed the brief statement released by the coroner Friday saying that it offered nothing new. He stated that her sister’s battle with drugs and bipolar disease compromised her health for many years and finally she was no more. He added that he would have loved to grow old with her, but her death never came as shock to anyone.
Experts said that drug use had the potential to exacerbate sleep apnea with potentially fatal results; however the report did not clear the matter surrounding the unfortunate incidence. A lot of people still do not understand if indeed Fisher took any drugs on that day when she suffered the cardiac arrest while trying to make an international flight.
Sources indicate that a longer and indeed more detailed report might be out by Monday.
According to latimes.com , the 60-year old Fisher after collapsing during her 11-hour flight from London to Los Angeles International Airport had quickly been rushed to hospital by Los Angeles Fire Department paramedics. This of course took place on Dec. 23.
This is not the first time that drug abuse is claiming a top actor’s life. Over the years, the world has lost a lot of actors to drug abuse regardless of the fact that a lot of anti-drug campaigns continue to be spearheaded.
