A sometimes deadly disorder that many Americans have, but aren’t aware of contributed to Carrie Fisher’s death. The Los Angeles Coroner’s Office said the primary cause of the beloved “Star Wars” icon’s death was sleep apnea, a disorder in which a person repeatedly stops and starts breathing while sleeping. Drug consumption was a contributing factor.
Fisher died in December from a heart attack aboard a Los Angeles-bound plane.
The report says Fisher had cocaine, ecstasy, heroin and methadone in her system when she died. Fisher was also taking prescription drugs.
