According to the police report filed by the Pasco County Sheriff's Office -- and obtained by TMZ -- investigators claim they found a box containing Oxycodone in Luna's kitchen ... near a pile of "blue, chalky debris next to a small straw."

Officials also claim they discovered "multiple prescription bottles and miscellaneous unsecured pills" in the master bedroom ... along with a small plate that contained more pill residue and another snorting straw.

According to the report, Luna's mother -- the person who discovered the body -- told cops that Luna "often appeared 'medicated' as she suffered from several wrestling injuries."

Officials tell TMZ an autopsy has been completed -- and an official cause of death should be determined within the next couple of weeks.

I'm sorry for her family's loss. This is proof that there needs to be a more help for these wrestlers after their careers end.

I agree, Sam. Unfortunately they are just thrown out to pasture once the feds are through using them up.

Too many of these WWE people die. It's from getting hit in the head so many times! It's messes with their brain and they snap and do strange things.

Dummy, the pills are not made to be snorted!! The coating on the pills are hazardous to your health if you snort it.

She must have been depressed and in great pain because she lost everything she had when her house burned down. This is really a sad story and my heart and prayers go out to the Vachon family, her fans & friends at this time. Rest in peace, Luna. You will be missed.

Luna was a great performer in the ring, and it's no surprise she had her ups and downs. She even suffered from BPD. It's a shame some people feel like there is no way to escape their pain, and give into drugs to "escape". I was a big fan of her in the ring, and in interviews she always came off as a very sweet woman. I will remember her for that, and knowing she is in a better place now. RIP.

Seems this report fails to note that the deceased in this case was living with her mother after her own home was damaged in a fire and personal belongings were not only lost in the fire but stolen as well. Not that this excuses the drug use but could have been part of why she lost her will to live.

Looking at the wrestler's who have died, I couldn't help but noticed "Flyin" Brian Pillman wasn't there.

Man, most of you guys are talking about her but don't know s*** about her... you should be ashamed of yourselves.

This really seems like she was severely depressed after losing all of her possessions in that house fire. She lost EVERYTHING from those WWF days. Everything.

She couldn't take it and folded. It's a shame because she always held that tough image to entertain people, but she was just destroyed on the inside and not letting it show until the end.
