Cause of Death Confirmed: Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds' Death Certificates Revealed
The death certificates of Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds have confirmed the Star Wars actress and Singin' in the Rain star died of cardiac arrest and a stroke, respectively.
In Fisher's case, however, the Los Angeles Coroner's Office is conducting more tests to determine what exactly caused her heart attack aboard a December 23 flight to LAX from London.
According to reports, the tests on Fisher will also include a toxicology report to determine if there were drugs in her system.
The 60-year-old Star Wars actress passed away on December 27. The day after her passing, her 84-year-old mother, Debbie Reynolds passed away of a intracerebral hemorrhage — commonly known as a stroke.
The mother and daughter were laid to rest in Los Angeles Friday. Fisher was cremated and her ashes were placed in an urn that resembled a massive Prozac pill.
The Golden Globes paid tribute to their legacy Sunday in a touching video montage. Meryl Streep, a longtime friend of Fisher, also mentioned the actress in her acceptance speech as she received the Cecil B. DeMille Award.
