Almost five months after the death of Lisa Robin Kelly, her family and friends now have closure.
According to the Los Angeles County Coroner’s Office, Kelly died of “multiple drug intoxication.” The final report also noted the actress consumed the substances orally – while reportedly staying at the Pax House Rehab Center in Altadena, Calif.
Notably, withdrawal medication is often used when patients enter treatment. It is not clear what medication she was given.
Kelly had voluntarily checked into the rehab facility.
The 43-year-old actress passed away on August 14, 2013.
Her death has been ruled an accidental overdose.
Kelly’s autopsy was performed at the time of her death, but the coroner had to wait for the results of a toxicology report to identify the exact cause of death.
Kelly had been troubled for the past couple of years — she was arrested at least 4 times in the past 3 years for DUI, spousal abuse and assault.
She first made her acting debut, at age 21, in a 1992 episode of Married with Children and went on to guest-star in many popular television shows, such as Murphy Brown, The X-Files, Sisters and Silk Stalkings. She finally earned her big break and minor celebrity status, at age 28, with her role as “Laurie Forman”, the promiscuous elder sister of “Eric Forman”, on That ’70s Show. She enjoyed brief success during the first two years of the show, including one of her only high-profile movies, Jawbreaker in 1999. She developed drug problems during filming of the third season of “That ’70s Show”, and was fired, it being explained that her character had left to attend beauty school.
Her character was eventually replaced by Christina Moore.
