Drew Barrymore’s Half-Sister Jessica Found Dead
Drew Barrymore’s half-sister Jessica Barrymore has been found dead.
Her body was discovered in a car on Tuesday near San Diego.
She would have turned 48 on Thursday.
Dozens of white pills were reportedly found near Barrymore’s body, although no official cause of death has been established.
Jessica Barrymore was the third child of John Barrymore (also Drew’s father) and his fourth wife Nina Wayne.
She worked at a Petco store, and her co-workers and friends have not reported any unusual recent behavior.
“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 said in a statement.
