Anne Heche Autopsy Report: Actor Not Intoxicated At The Time of Death

Anne Heche Autopsy Report: Although there were traces of cocaine in Anne Heche’s system at the time of the actor’s fatal car accident in California on August 5, the actor’s final autopsy report has found that she was not intoxicated.

Heche, 53, suffered severe injuries after crashing her blue Mini Cooper into a Mar Vista home, starting a large fire. “There was no evidence of impairment by illicit substances at the time of the incident,” said Sarah Ardalani, a Los Angeles County Coroner spokeswoman.

Later, she died from a “severe anoxic brain injury” that swelled her brain. On August 11, she was deemed legally dead, and two days later, her life support was turned off.

Firefighters had to wait around 30 minutes for Heche to be freed from her car while it was still on fire. According to the autopsy report, which was made public on Tuesday, Heche had first-degree burns on almost 40% of her body.

Officials from the coroner reported that Heche had no alcohol in her system at the time of the collision. However, it was found that the actor’s blood had traces of benzoylecgonine, the primary metabolite of cocaine.

Heche had previously used cocaine, but not at the time of the accident, according to this. Fentanyl was found in Heche’s system, according to a toxicology report, although it was “obtained after she got treatment at the hospital and is therefore consistent with therapeutic use.”

The report stated that although cannabis was found in Heche’s urine sample, it was “not detected in the admission blood and is consistent with prior usage, but not at the time of the injury.” Shortly after Heche’s life support was turned off, the coroner declared her death an accident.

The actor’s estate has now been sued for $2 million by the woman who resided in the Mar Vista rental home where Heche crashed her automobile. The crash cost the woman her house and most of her belongings, but neither she nor her pets suffered any physical harm.
