Anne Heche’s life support is to be switched off one week after her horrendous car crash.
The actress has been declared brain dead. Her family have revealed that she has been kept on life support to see if her organs would be viable for donation.
Los Angeles Police Department revealed that blood tests of the 53-year-old revealed there to be drugs in her system at the time of the incident. Her Mini Cooper crashed into a house in LA on August 5.
Heche suffered a severe anoxic brain injury, which is caused by a lack of oxygen to the brain.
The LAPD spokesman Matthew Cruz said:
“This case is still an active and ongoing investigation and is currently in the process of gathering additional evidence; to include final toxicology results, and medical records from both parties involved.”
“It is the intent of the investigating Detectives to present this case to the appropriate prosecuting office: the Los Angeles County District Attorney or the Los Angeles City Attorney’s office once all pertinent evidence has been gathered.”
Cruz updated that blood tests “did show signs of narcotics”.
