According to a full autopsy report release Monday, Actress Carrie Fisher had multiple drugs in her system when she went into cardiac arrest on a flight and later died.

The Los Angeles County medical examiner concluded that "sleep apnea and other undetermined factors" contributed to Fisher's death in December.

The toxicology review found evidence Fisher may have ingested cocaine within 72 hours of falling ill. Heroin and methadone were also cited, along with "remote exposure" to the drug commonly known as ecstasy.

The autopsy notes the significance of the drugs, in relation to the cause of death, could not be established.

Fisher was open about her battles with substance abuse and mental illness, writing about them in her memoirs.
