Last year, people all over the world were shocked and saddened when the legendary actress, Carrie Fisher, died at just 60-years-old. Best known for her role as Princess Leia in the popular Star Wars series, Fisher had become an icon to people everywhere.
With her death being so sudden and no health problems being reported, many people wonder what could have cut Fisher’s life so short. However, recent test results may have found some of the answers.
According to reports, several drugs were found in Fisher’s system at the time of her death. Although it’s not clear whether any of these things were a contributing factor, the findings are pretty odd.
One of the drugs found in Fisher’s system was cocaine. As many people know, this drug is known to have some very serious side effects on the body.
A small amount of MDMA, most commonly known as ecstasy, was also found in Fisher’s system. This drug became very popular several years ago when it became a common party drug used by teens and young adults.
Heroin is a very powerful drug and long term use can cause side effects such as slowed respiration and a slowed heart rate.
Other drugs found in Fisher’s system include various opiates. However, the amounts and times of intake could not be determined.
Although many will assume that these drugs played a role in Fisher’s death, officially reports have listed sleep apnea and other issues as contributing factors.
