The Los Angeles County Department of Public Health has confirmed that Carrie Fisher died of a cardiac arrest...
The death certificate was issued detailing cardiac arrest / deferred as the cause of Carrie's death but indicates that further investigation is required to identify the underlying cause. Reports are suggesting that toxicology tests will take weeks to complete.
Carrie Fisher passed away on 27th December last year following a major cardiac event on a flight from London to LA. She was just 60 years old. Carrie is known for her inimitable sense of humour and she managed to crack one final joke as she was laid to rest with her mother, Debbie Reynolds, when it was revealed that her "urn" would be her prized, over sized Prozac pill.
Carrie and Debbie Reynolds, who died just one day after her daughter, were laid to rest, together at Forrest Hills Memorial Park in the Hollywood Hills.
