Last month, 18-year-old Victoria Siegel was found unresponsive in her family home, and was later pronounced dead after being rushed to Health Center Hospital in Florida.
Around the time she passed, a spokesperson for the family thought it was probable that the daughter of Queen of Versailles stars David and Jackie Siegel had taken drugs before she died. They conducted an autopsy so they could know for sure.
Now, results of the examination have been released, and reveal the 18-year-old was killed because of “acute methadone and sertraline toxicity,” which refers to a lethal mixture of drugs.
Methadone is for pain medication, while Sertraline — AKA Zoloft — is a depression drug. Tragically, combining the two ultimately resulted in her death, which the coroner is calling an accident.
The spokesperson said that Victoria had been working to overcome her addiction, but on the morning of her death, she allegedly received hurtful texts sent from her boyfriend’s phone that had been written by his ex.
He added it was possible this cyberbullying is what drove her to take drugs.
We can’t imagine losing a child, and our hearts go out to everyone affected by Victoria’s untimely passing.
