Debbie Reynolds’ autopsy – cause of death finally confirmed to poignant last words

The lead actor of the theatrical production “Singin’ in the Rain” was rushed to the medical facility by an emergency vehicle and pronounced dead merely a couple of hours afterwards, at 84 years old.

Heartbroken Debbie claimed that her daughter died on a transatlantic flight, despite numerous reports revealing that her death certificate was not the result of a broken heart.

The mother and daughter eventually had some of their ashes buried together at a Hollywood Hills memorial park, poignantly reunited in death.

To commemorate the 91st birthday of Debbie, Daily Star is exploring the specifics of her passing.

Daughter’s tragic death

Princess Leia star Carrie Fisher was just 60 years old when she tragically died after a flight from London to Los Angeles.

The actress on the commercial aircraft stopped breathing until paramedics arrived at the scene, performing CPR with a nearby passenger.

Carrie passed away on December 27, 2016, following a lengthy stay in the intensive care unit. She was transported to the hospital by ambulance and upon arrival, she was unconscious and required the assistance of a ventilator.

Carrie died from a cardiac arrest, with her autopsy revealing traces of MDMA, opiates, and cocaine, indicating her involvement with heroin as well.

The report could not determine whether the medications actually played a role in the death of the Star Wars actress.

When she experienced a medical crisis personally, her mother Debbie was devastated, compelled to handle the funeral preparations for her daughter at her son Todd’s residence.

‘Broken heart’ claims

Todd Fisher, Debbie’s son, verified that she “did not pass away as a result of emotional distress” despite her immense sadness over the death of her daughter.

He informed ABC News that Debbie “did not desire to depart from Carrie and did not wish for her to be solitary”.

Todd verified at that moment that the mother and daughter would be laid to rest side by side.

Eventually, Debbie’s body was entombed in a crypt at Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Hollywood Hills, alongside a portion of her daughter’s ashes.

The remainder of Carrie’s ashes were held in a giant novelty Prozac pill – just as the quirky star would have wanted.

‘Severe stroke’

The death certificate of Debbie Reynolds verified that the starlet succumbed to a ruptured blood vessel, leading to hemorrhaging in her brain.

The official record, acquired by TMZ, documented hypertension as the fundamental reason for her stroke, indicating her demise as an intracerebral haemorrhage.

There was no official post-mortem examination conducted, and her demise was not notified to the coroner.

Subsequently, the sorrowful emergency calls to the authorities were made available to the public, acquired by TMZ.

A doctor arrived at the scene when the call abruptly ended before discussing Debbie’s vital signs with a nurse who joined the call later. With Debbie’s son by her side, the 911 operator was informed by the man.

Todd, the son of Debbie, disclosed the star’s meaningful final remarks during his interview with ABC News.

Prior to experiencing a stroke, Debbie was overheard expressing: “I long for her greatly. I desire to be with Carrie.”

“She would like to be with her again,” she said this morning. “She was very, very sad about losing Carrie,” he explained.

“After a quarter of an hour, she experienced a severe stroke.”

I am grateful for your prayers and thoughts now, as I stop next to Carrie’s mother to guide her. Thank you to everyone who has embraced the amazing talents and gifts of my beloved and amazing daughter. Paying tribute to her daughter, Debbie had written a post on Facebook during the week of their deaths.
