Toxicology tests revealed that she had methamphetamine, alcohol, methadone, tramadol and nordiazepam in her system, according the San Diego County Medical Examiner.

Jessica Barrymore and Drew Barrymore are both daughters of actor John Drew Barrymore but have different mothers.

Drew Barrymore, who was born nine years after Jessica, met her half-sister only “briefly,” she said in a statement. She expressed sorrow at her death.

“I wish her and her loved ones as much peace as possible and I’m so incredibly sorry for their loss,” she said.
