Playing Cathriona White 'Addressed' a Note to Jim Carrey Before Apparent Suicide, Coroner Says

Cathriona White, the late girlfriend of Jim Carrey, left behind some sort of note for the actor before her apparent suicide. The 30-year-old was found dead in her homeon Monday, from a possible overdose, and now ET has learned that she "addressed" a note to Carrey.

"There were several pieces of paper, notes and envelopes found. One was addressed to Jim, but it was not signed or dated," Assistant Chief Coroner Ed Winter tells ET.

Winter says that she was found in her bedroom lying on her bed, and that there were prescription pill bottles found nearby. "Her actual time of death is pending the autopsy," he notes. "But the last know time anyone had talked to her was the morning of the 24th."

That autopsy will take place either later this afternoon or tomorrow.

On Tuesday, Winter first revealed that, while he had not personally seen any note, "The note apparently was either addressed to Jim Carrey or his name was in the note."

Carrey and White met in 2012 and dated on and off for the last three years.

"She was a truly kind and delicate Irish flower, too sensitive for this soil, to whom loving and being loved was all that sparkled," Carrey told ET in a statement. "My heart goes out to her family and friends and to everyone who loved and cared about her."
