Can't Buy Me Love's Amanda Peterson's Untimely Death Linked To Multi-Drug Overdose

This is still so sad.

We were shocked back in July when Can't Buy Me Love star Amanda Peterson suddenly passed away at the young age of 43, but now the toxicology reports are in, and they confirmed our worst fears.

It turns out that Amanda's cause of death was a massive overdose consisting of as few as five different drugs, including; benzodizepines, opiates, phenothiazines, marijuana, and even morphine.

In fact, the medical examiner said that she had six times the accurate dosage of one of her pain killers in her system — yikes.

Amanda was reported missing on July 3, before sadly being found dead in her Greeley, Colorado home on July 5.

Our thoughts continue to be with Amanda's friends and family at this time.

Rest in Peace, Amanda.

Can't Buy Me Love Star Amanda Peterson Has Died At 43

Filed under: Film FlickersR.I.P.Sad SadNostalgia

Amanda Peterson, who played Cindy in Can't Buy Me Love, has passed away.

Oh no!

Amanda Peterson, whose claim to fame was a starring role in Can't Buy Me Love, has died — she was 43 years old.

The former actress' body was found in her Greeley, Colorado home on Sunday after her father said he got worried because he hadn't heard from her since Friday.

He says he doesn't know what officially caused his daughter to pass at a relatively young age, but did explain that she had sleep apnea, which is a sleep disorder that causes breathing to repeatedly stop and start.

Her father said the disorder, along with another illness, could have contributed to her passing.

Amanda's rise to stardom happened when she was cast as Cindy alongside Patrick Dempsey in the iconic 1987 film, but she left the life of fame and fortune behind in 1994 when she dropped out of the entertainment industry and moved to Colorado.

Our hearts go out to everyone who is affected by this sad loss, and our thoughts are with them during this tough time.
