While the 60-year-old actress was open about her drug use, the toxicology report has still come as a shock to her fans.

The Los Angeles County Coroner had previously revealed the cause of death was sleep apnea and a heart attack along with "other factors." Now, those “other factors” have been revealed.

The full toxicology report shows there was also a cocktail of powerful and dangerous drugs in her system including cocaine, heroin, morphine, codeine, oxycodone and ecstasy.

Surprisingly, the coroner said there was no evidence, however, that any of those drugs led to her December 27 death.

Fisher's daughter, actress Billie Lourd, acknowledged her mother's drug use tweeting: "My mom battled drug addiction and mental illness her entire life. She ultimately died of it. I know my mom, she'd want her death to encourage people to be open about their struggles."
