Lisa Robin Kelly died from multiple drug intoxication, medical examiners determined, closing the book on the short and troubled life of the actress.
Kelly was found dead in her sleep close to six months ago, and though she had battled addiction for years medical examiners could not pinpoint drugs as the immediate cause of her death. No drugs or alcohol were found in Lisa’s room at the time of her death, and there were no signs of foul play.
Now, months later the official cause of Kelly’s death has been listed as multiple drug intoxication. The Los Angeles County Coroner ruled that her death was an accident, but did not note exactly what drugs were in her system.
Lisa Robin Kelly was best known for playing the older sister of character Eric Forman on the Fox sitcom That ’70s Show, but in recent years had garnered headlines for her transgressions. Kelly was arrested at least four times in the last three years for a variety of reasons, including DUI, spousal abuse, and assault.
When Lisa passed away, friends and family remembered her as talented by troubled.
Kelly’s agent Craig Wyckoff also told People magazine that she had “addiction problems that have plagued her these past few years” and had checked herself in to a treatment facility just days before her death.
Lisa Robin Kelly was 43 when she died.
