Coroner: Cocaine among drugs found in Carrie Fisher's system

But investigators could not determine what impact the cocaine and other drugs had on her death.

"Drugs of abuse such as cocaine, heroin and amphetamine derivatives are very hard to interpret based on quantitative levels in tissues or blood postmortem", the report reads.

"My mom battled drug addiction and mental illness her entire life", a statement to People magazine reads.

The L.A. County Coroner released its full autopsy on Monday, and it revealed that Fisher may have taken cocaine approximately 72 hours before her flight on December 23.

"Star Wars" star Carrie Fisher's mother was a famous actress, singer and dancer.

The sleeping condition and a build-up of fatty tissue in her arteries were among the issues recorded, a Los Angeles coroner said. Medical examiners concluded that "sleep apnea and other undetermined factors" contributed to her death. She died four days later, aged 60.

Fisher's daughter, actress Billie Lourd, 24, released a statement to People addressing the findings of Monday's toxicology report.

Todd Fisher said Friday he was not surprised that drugs may have contributed to his sister's death.

"They're working on her right now", the pilot said in a public recording of the conversation on liveatc.net. She was purposefully open in all of her work about the social stigmas surrounding these diseases. Toward the end of the flight, Fisher could not be stirred awake, the report states. I know my Mom, she'd want her death to encourage people to be open about their struggles.

She made her film debut in 1975, starring in the comedy Shampoo with Warren Beatty and Goldie Hawn.

A series of nonfiction books, including Wishful Drinking and The Princess Diarist, cemented her reputation as a serious author. She had stated she was on medication to treat that condition. She is a movie star, recording artist, television actor, nightclub entertainer, Broadway performer and co-founder of the Thalians, a group that has raised more than $30 million for mental health.

Reynolds had a stroke after her daughter's death and died on December 28.
