Cathriona White, the 30-year-old girlfriend of Jim Carrey was found dead Monday in a home in Sherman Oaks. A friend found White unconscious in the house on the 1500 block of Briarwood Drive. She was pronounced dead at the scene at 8:40 p.m.
Although an autopsy has yet to take place and no one knows the true cause of death, a coroner by the name of Ed Winter told The Hollywood Reporter pills were found next to White’s body. Not to mention a suicide note was also found. According to Winter, the note is either directly for Carrey or references him by name. Carrey issued a statement claiming:
“I am shocked and deeply saddened by the passing of my sweet Cathriona. She was a truly kind and delicate Irish flower, too sensitive for this soil, to whom loving and being loved was all that sparkled. My heart goes out to her family and friends and to everyone who loved and cared about her. We have all been hit with a lightning bolt.”
White and Carrey began dating in 2012 but that was short lived. The couple were seen again though back in May, attempting to fix things apparently. Her last tweet on Sept. 24 read:
“Signing off Twitter, I hope I have been a light to my nearest and dearest.”
