Jessica Barrymore, half-sister of Drew Barrymore and daughter of John Drew Barrymore and Nina Wayne was found dead in her car on Tuesday (July 29). Neighbors, including witness Marta Lopez, reported finding Jessica unresponsive in her car, which was blocking their San Diego apartment driveway. Reports said Jessica was found with a SoBe energy drink in her lap and was surrounded by "dozens of white pills." Witness Oscar Sandoval said, "Her car was parked right here last night around midnight," telling KGTV ABC10, "I thought she was sleeping or waiting for someone." Jessica would have turned 48 tomorrow (July 31). An autopsy will be performed to rule the cause of her death.

Drew Barrymore is no stranger to drug and alcohol addiction herself, having been in drug rehab twice in her teens. Now 39, in addition to her acting career, Drew successfully runs her own cosmetics company and has two children, Frankie and Olive, with husband Will Kopelman. She released a statement that read: "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 also has another half-sister Blyth and a half-brother John. ~Andrea Hodgins

    Kinda sad that she "only met her briefly."

    That is truly sad, briefly? If you have family, they should
    Mean more to you than any worldly possession.

    This is very sad indeed!

    Its like you learn my thoughts! You seem to grasp a lot about this, such as you
    wrote the guide in it or something. I think that you
    simply could do with some percent to drive the message house a little bit,
    however other than that, this is magnificent blog.

    A fantastic read. I will definitely be back.
