The report says the world-famous "Star Wars" actress certified positive for cocaine, methadone, alcohol and opiates, but investigators couldn't define whether those drugs contributed to her death in December.

Carrie Fisher had cocaine and other drugs in her system at the time of her death, according to a full autopsy report and toxicology results released Monday.

The report says the world-famous "Star Wars" actress certified positive for cocaine, methadone, alcohol and opiates, but investigators couldn't define whether those drugs contributed to her death in December. Coroner'south executive have ruled Fisher died from sleep apnea and a mix of "other undetermined factors."

Fisher died at age sixty on Dec. twenty-seven, four days after falling ill and becoming unresponsive on a flight from London to Los Angeles. Her mother, Hollywood icon Debbie Reynolds, died the following day.

The report says there were traces of heroin and ecstasy drug MDMA in Fisher'south system, but investigators couldn't define when she'd taken those drugs or what role they played in her death.

The findings were based on toxicology screenings of samples taken when the actress, who played Princess Leia in the "Star Wars" saga, arrived at a LA hospital.

Fisher was outspoken about her mental health and battles with drug addiction. She drew on her struggles with bipolar disorder and drugs in her semi-autobiography first novel, "Postcards from the Edge," which was later adapted into a film.
