ROUGH CUT. NO REPORTER NARRATION. The death last year of actress Carrie Fisher, best known for her role as Princess Leia in the "Star Wars" franchise, was due to sleep apnea and other causes according to a statement released on Friday (16 June) by the Los Angeles County Coroner's Office. The coroner also said Fisher had atherosclerotic heart disease and had used drugs. Fisher died at age 60 on December 27, four days after she became unresponsive on a flight into Los Angeles and was rushed to a hospital. The day after Carrie Fisher died, her mother Debbie Reynolds, who sang and danced her way into the hearts of moviegoers in Hollywood musicals such as "Singin' in the Rain," suffered a stroke and died at the age of 84.
