The Star Wars actress died a day before her mother on December 26.

According to a death certificate obtained by TMZ, Fisher’s cause of death was listed as “cardiac arrest/deferred.” This means that thee Los Angeles County Coroner’s Office will have to perform more toxicology tests to determine the cause of a massive heart attack.

Fisher suffered from a heart attack while on a flight from London to Los Angeles. Her family is reportedly on the hunt for two people who helped keep her alive on the flight. Though she was initially said to be in stable condition, she passed just four days later.

Singing in the Rain star Debbie Reynolds died on December 27, a day after her daughter. She reportedly said “I miss her so much, I want to be with Carrie” just before she passed.

Reynolds suffered a stroke, the cause of her death. Hypertension is said to have been the cause of the stroke, as sources say the death of her daughter was too much to bear. It was also said that a blood vessel ruptured, causing bleeding in her brain. Her son, Todd Fisher, called 911 when she was unresponsive in his Beverly Hills home.
