Fisher had several drugs in system at time of her death

By AP Reporter

Carrie Fisher had cocaine in her system when she fell ill on a plane last year, her post-mortem examination report shows.

But investigators could not determine what impact the cocaine and other drugs found in the Star Wars actress's system had on her death from sleep apnoea and other factors.

Yesterday's report states she may have taken cocaine three days before the December 23 flight on which she became ill. She died four days later.

It also found traces of heroin and MDMA, but that they could not determine when she had taken those drugs. The findings were based on toxicology screenings on samples taken after Fisher arrived at hospital.
