Per the autopsy report released Friday, Carrie Fisher apparently died from sleep apnea along with a combination of other factors such as a buildup of fatty tissue in her arteries. However, the report issued by the Los Angeles County Coroner’s Office is inconclusive of what actually caused her death.
The release by the Los Angeles County Coroner’s Office also said that there were signs of drug use. However, it is unconfirmed if that actually led to her death. A toxicology report was not released by the bureau.
Fisher never denied her frequent use of drugs. Many of the drugs that she used were prescription medications prescribed by her doctors to treat her mental illness.
Fisher’s brother, Todd Fisher, said, “I am not shocked that part of her health was affected by drugs.” He went on to say that his sister suffered from a heart condition and that was exacerbated by her smoking and prescription drug use. “If you want to know what killed her, it’s all of it,” Todd Fisher said.
Todd Fisher also said they couldn’t blame the doctors for her death because they were just trying to help her. “They were doing their best to cure a mental disorder. Can you really blame them?” Todd Fisher said. “Without her drugs, maybe she would have left long ago.”
