San Diego – The half-sister of actress Drew Barrymore, who was found dead last month, died of a drug overdose, a coroner’s report confirms. As reported by CNN, the San Diego County Medical Examiner attributed 47-year-old Jessica Barrymore’s death to an accidental drug overdose after toxicology reports revealed she had a lethal combination of drugs and alcohol in her system.
Jessica Barrymore was found dead in a car in July. At the time, Drew Barrymore released a statement saying she had only “briefly” met her half-sister, and stated, “I wish her and her loved ones as much peace as possible and I’m so incredibly sorry for their loss.”
Actor John Drew Barrymore is the late father of Jessica Barrymore and Drew Barrymore, whom have different mothers.
