The autopsy report obtained on Heche contains toxicological findings. A blood test at the hospital revealed that Anne had benzoylecgonine, an inactive form of cocaine. According to the Los Angeles medical examiner, that suggests prior usage. Results also revealed the actress's usage of marijuana, although not at the accident scene. Heche's system also showed no signs of alcohol. A photograph showing a liquor bottle in the front seat of the actress' car fuelled rumors that she was drunk at the time of the collision.
