Matthew Perry did not die from ‘fentanyl or meth’ according to toxicology report

Friends star Matthew Perry dies aged 54

Matthew Perry was found lifeless inside of his hot tub at his home in Los Angeles on Saturday at age 54.

A less in-depth toxicology report, shared with TMZ, has now shown fentanyl or meth did not turn up in the Friend star’s system.

The preliminary test is less in-depth than the full toxicology testing which is still pending, and may not be available for months according to the outlet.

The full toxicology report will also reveal if Matthew had harmful amounts of prescription drugs in his system at the time of his death.

It has been previously reported that investigators found prescription drugs including anti-depressants and anti-anxiety medication at his home.

A member of Matthew’s AA program told the MailOnline: “Matty wasn’t drinking. He was a big part of our AA community.

“He had a sponsor and was a sponsor. He seemed to be doing well.”

The insider told the publication Matthew had been focused on helping others with their recovery and wanted to share more of his story at public speaking events.

After an initial investigation, the Los Angeles County coroner has deferred giving a cause of death, which may take weeks to determine.

The result will likely take anywhere from four to six months to be returned, and once all this data is gathered, the coroner will then determine the cause and manner of death.

The actor’s body has now been released by the Los Angeles County coroner to his family for funeral arrangements.
