Drew Barrymore’s half sister Jessica Barrymore has been found dead in California. So sad!
Drew Barrymore’s half sister, Jessica Barrymore, was found dead in a car early Tuesday in National City, California, just north of San Diego.
Jessica’s body was discovered when a woman trying to leave for work found her driveway blocked by a car, reports KGTV ABC10 San Diego.
She reportedly found Jessica unresponsive and reclined in the seat, an energy drink between her legs, dozens of white pills scattered on the passenger seat. An autopsy had yet to be scheduled.
Drew and her half sister – who would have turned 48 on July 31 and attended the San Diego School of Creative and Performing Arts – had the same father, John Drew Barrymore.
Of her half-sister’s untimely death, Drew said in a statement: “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.”
May she rest in peace.
