Jim Carrey's Painkillers Found Next To Girlfriend's Body With 2 Goodbye Notes To Actor

Jim Carrey's girlfriend left two notes addressed to the actor at the side of the bed where she killed herself apparently with drugs prescribed for Carrey, a Los Angeles investigator confirmed to Lead Stories.

Cathriona White is believed to have taken an overdose of several drugs that had been prescribed to Carrey under an alias, including the painkiller Percocet, insomnia treatment Ambien and the blood pressure medicine Propranolol, according to Los Angeles County Assistant Chief Coroner Ed Winter.

Investigators found four drug bottles next to the bed where White died, three of them prescribed to an alias traced to Carrey. It's not illegal in California for a doctor to use a fake name to prescribe controlled drugs to a celebrity patient as long as the pharmacist is aware of the alias, Winter said.

Winter would not disclosed what White, 30, wrote to Carrey, 53, with whom she had been in an on-and-off relationship for three years. The two notes to him were found at the death scene.

While White's death has been determined to be a suicide, the final report will not be issued for another two months. It will take that long for toxicology lab results to show which drugs caused her death.

White's body was still at the county morgue Monday, October 5, 2015, but will soon be given to her family for transport back to her native Ireland for burial.

Carrey, whose relationship with White began dating in 2012, tweeted a photo she took of him in New York less than two weeks before her death.
