Lisa Robin Kelly

No Signs of Drugs, Trauma

Lisa Robin Kelly was not taking any withdrawal drugs at the time she died -- at least that's what the rehab facility told law enforcement ... TMZ has learned.

Our law enforcement sources tell us ... reps from the L.A. County Coroner and L.A. County Sheriff's homicide came to Pax Rehab House in Altadena, CA Thursday afternoon, and officials from Pax said unequivocally ... they did NOT give Lisa any drugs.

TMZ broke the story ... the star of "That '70s Show" died in her sleep Wednesday night, after being admitted to the facility on Monday for alcohol abuse.

We're told law enforcement is calling Lisa's death "a mystery."  There were no drugs or alcohol in her room, no vomit in her airway, and no obvious sign of trauma.

As we reported ... Lisa's boyfriend took her to the hospital Sunday, where she registered a .34 blood alcohol level, which is borderline fatal.  Lisa was admitted to Pax the next day, and she had been to rehab dozens of times before -- yes, dozens.

The Coroner is doing an autopsy.

I thought it was rather well known that there's 2 primary detox's that can kill you, and it's alcohol and heroin. Other drugs can cause issues during withdrawl, like Benzo's can lead to seizures, which can lead to death, but only alcohol and heroin can kill simply by being gone from the body. If she had a .34 BAC on Sunday, and died early Wed. morning, then this isn't too hard to figure out. Aren't there prescriptions she could have been on to prevent this, though?

They weren't monitoring her withdrawals properly. Probably a seizure. Her ex, or someone in her family will probably sue the facility.

I used to live in a small town where there was, of course, a town drunk(isn't there always that person in every small town?), and whenever dude would get arrested, the cops would supply him a 12 pack of beer in his cell. Because even COPS know that attempting to dry out a stone-cold drunk can lead to death. I wouldn't have believed it if the officer hadn't come into the store I was working at to buy it for him.

Too soon to jump to conclusions. I think that if she died in her sleep, she most likely died of natural causes, brought on by years of heavy drinking and drugs.

Jail, institutions, and death. Pretty much describes alcoholism.

Probably died of alcohol withdrawal. Rehab SHOULD know how to treat this!!! They SHOULD be sued! (and I never say that)

Isn't a patient in acute detox supposed to be given Diazepam or something similar to control seizures and/or stroke? I'm shocked that her life was lost under clinical care like this. So, so tragic.

When alcohol is removed from an addict doesn't EVERYONE realize they can die without meds at first. Ever hear of DT's? This is an example of lazy caregivers who never bothered to really evaluate her dire situation. Really tragic.

Maybe her liver just gave out from blood poisoning or her kidneys gave out. Maybe her body just couldn't process all of the alcohol any more. I thoght if you had alcohol poisoning, they pumped your stomach or made you drink activated charcoal. It is seems they just left her to herself in this place.


You can wear out your body from too much drinking. It makes you age a lot faster. Maybe she should have gone to a hospital instead of a detox house. The hospital could maybe have done some sort of treatment.

Obviously she could have died from a heart attack in her sleep. If she had liver problems from all the alcohol it would have been mentioned by now probably, but that is also a possibility.

I looked up Pax Rehab House, and it looks like some kind of yoga retreat, not a medical facility equipped to handle this kind of detox. They don't even appear to have a doctor on staff, just therapists and counselors. As soon as she registered a .34, she should have been taken directly to the hospital.
