Drew Barrymore's half-sister Jessica Barrymore was found dead Tuesday from a suspected suicide.
A Medical Examiner's press release states that 47-year-old Jessica Barrymore was found dead in her car on July 29, 2014 around 6 a.m. in National City, a town just north of San Diego, Calif.
According to ABC 10 News, her neighbor, Marta Lopez, noticed the vehicle had been parked for about six hours and discovered Jessica when she attempted to leave work but was blocked in her driveway by the car. Lopez told 10 News that she attempted to wake her up but noticed there were pill bottles in the vehicle, and called the police instead.
"Although I only met her briefly, I wish her and her loved ones as much peace as possible and I'm so incredibly sorry for their loss," Drew Barrymore told ET in a statement Tuesday.
Jessica was to turn 48 tomorrow, July 31. She is the daughter of actor John Drew Barrymore and his third wife Nina Wayne.
