MAR VISTA, LOS ANGELES: Anne Heche’s death has been ruled an accident days after it was reported that her life support system had been disabled following her death.
The 53-year-old actress died from breathing in smoke and burning herself, the Los Angeles County medical examiner-coroner said. She also suffers from a ‘blunt trauma sternal fracture’, which is a ‘serious condition’ often caused when a person’s chest hits the steering wheel in an accident.
Heche’s life support system was disabled on Sunday, August 14, after health officials found people who were compatible with his organs. She died a week after being seriously injured in a car accident while “high on cocaine”. Heche had not been drinking alcohol, but the drug was found in his blood after the accident. She had been seen with a bottle of vodka in her cup holder. Heche is said to be brain dead a few days after the accident that caused his car to catch fire.
Lynne Mishele, whose house Anne Heche crashed and killed, has a GoFundMe page that has raised over $100,000 for her.
What is the name of Lynne Mishele? Anne Heche crashed her car into a woman’s house, setting it on fire.
Heche’s organs were kept alive even after his death so they could be donated to other people. TMZ has learned from sources that surgeons removed multiple organs over the weekend. We don’t know what it is or how many there are. His sons Homer and Atlas are still alive.
At first, the LAPD considered the crash a possible felony because the woman whose car crashed was injured. Lynne Mishele, the wife, was in the house at the time. It is unclear how injured Mishele was. But police have now said ‘no further investigation will be carried out’ into the case. However, according to People, “any information or records that were requested prior to this turn of events will still be collected as they come in as a matter of formality.”
After Heche’s death, a family representative told TMZ, “We have lost a bright light, a kind and joyful soul, a loving mother and a faithful friend. Anne will be sorely missed, but she will live on through her beautiful sons, her famous works and the causes she was so passionate about. Her bravery in always speaking the truth and spreading her message of love and acceptance will have a lasting effect.
In an Instagram post, Mishele shared her sadness and sent a message to the late actress’ family and friends. “To hear that Anne Heche has passed away is very sad. Her family, friends and especially her children have really lost a lot, and my heart goes out to them,” Mishele said in an Instagram video post. “This whole situation is sad and there are no words to describe it. I send everyone involved my love,” she said. Prior to the accident, Mishele was helping her cancer-stricken dog get better. Mishele was nearly injured in the crash, so a GoFundMe was set up for her. The house, on the other hand, was in ruins.
