Jessica Barrymore died last month and now the SDC medical report claims that she died due to an overdose of drugs and alcohol.

Jessica Barrymore was the half-sister of Hollywood star Drew Barrymore. She died last month at the age of 47. Jessica Barrymore was found dead in a car parked in Hoover Avenue in National City, California on July 29.

And the San Diego County Medical Examiner’s office released a report earlier this week that declared that a drugs and alcohol overdose was the cause of death.

According to NBC 7, the medical examiner found "alcohol, methamphetamine, methadone (an opioid), tramadol (a narcotic-like pain reliever) and noriazepam (a Valium metabolite) in her system" after her death.

John Drew Barrymore Jr. is the father of both Jessica Barrymore and Drew Barrymore. John Drew Barrymore has a total of four kids. Drew Barrymore is nine years younger than Jessica Barrymore. Drew's father remained married to her mother Nina Wayne for 13 years. Drew Barrymore did not have a strong relationship with her half-sister.

“Although I only met her briefly, I wish her and her loved ones as much peace as possible and I'm so incredibly sorry for their loss,” said Drew Barrymore in her statement after her sister's death.

May she rest in peace…
