Drew Barrymore’s half-sister Jessica was found dead on Tuesday morning outside San Diego.
Her body was discovered after a woman attempted to leave for work and found she couldn’t because a car was blocking her driveway. Inside, Jessica was unresponsive with energy drinks between her legs and white pills scattered on the passenger seat, a local ABC affiliate reports.
John Barrymore’s late daughter would’ve turned 48 tomorrow, July 31.

Prior to her mysterious death, Jessica shared a cryptic message on Facebook, which read:
“Life doesn’t always introduce you to the people you WANT to meet. Sometimes, life puts you in touch with the people you NEED to meet to Help You, to Hurt you, to Guide You, to Leave You, to Love You, and to gradually Strengthen You into the Person You Were Meant to Become.”
Shortly after news of Jessica’s death came out, Drew released a statement about her late half-sister, and hinted about their estranged relationship.
“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,” the mom-of-2 said in a statement.
As of press time, an autopsy has not been scheduled.
