Coroner releases results of Carrie Fisher death inquiry

Carrie Fisher died of sleep apnea and "other factors", a coroner has ruled, without pinpointing an exact cause of death.

Atherosclerotic heart disease - the buildup of fat in and on artery walls - was among the conditions that caused her death, the Los Angeles County coroner's office said in a release late Friday. Fisher had taken multiple drugs prior her death, but investigators could not determine whether they contributed to her death in December.

Fisher had a heart attack on a flight from London to Los Angeles on December 23rd past year and was immediately rushed to the hospital. "She ultimately died of it", she said.

Fisher had always been open about her struggle with bipolar disorder and substance abuse issues, starting at only age 13 when she began smoking marijuana. She later died in the hospital, just one day before her mother, Debbie Reynolds, passed away. "We're not enlightened. There's nothing about this that is enlightening", he said.

Fisher long battled drug addiction and mental illness. At 13, she smoked pot.

Her bipolar disorder was treated with electroshock therapy and medication.

"I am not shocked that part of her health was affected by drugs", Todd Fisher said. She also appeared in "Austin Powers", "The Blues Brothers", "Charlie's Angels", "Hannah and Her Sisters", "Scream 3" and "When Harry Met Sally". "I know my Mom, she'd want her death to encourage people to be open about their struggles".
