One year after Carrie Fisher died suddenly at the relatively young age of 60, her Star Wars co-star Mark Hamill has paid a moving tribute to her, saying that she is "always with us".
Carrie Fisher suffered a suspected heart attack on a flight home last Christmas from London to Los Angeles and died in hospital some three days later, with her loved ones by her bedside.
In a touching tribute, Mark Hamill shared two pictures of the two of them together and a drawing of Carrie with her beloved dog, giving the finger. He wrote: “No one’s ever really gone… #AlwaysWithUs #CarrieOnForever.”
The Star Wars actress had heroin, cocaine, methadone and ecstasy in her system at the time of her tragic death, according to the autopsy report.
While the coroner’s report on Carrie Fisher's death listed sleep apnea as the primary cause of death, it was added that a cocktail of illegal drugs also played a role.
The autopsy report also stated that a likely exposure to heroin could have suppressed her breathing as she went into cardiac arrest. But the report concluded: “The manner of death has been ruled undetermined.”
In addition to the Class-a drugs, Fisher was also taking Prozac, Abilify, Lamictal and oxycodone.
