Lisa Robin Kelly

Authorities Suspicious of Cause of Death

0623-Lisa-Robin-Kelly-getty
Authorities are suspicious of the cause of Lisa Robin Kelly's death and both the L.A. County Coroner and the L.A. County Sheriff are conducting separate investigations ... TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement sources tell us ... the L.A. County Coroner never got a call from the rehab facility where Kelly died.   A doctor at the rehab facility pronounced Kelly dead at 8:07 AM Thursday, but we're told the Coroner didn't find out until noon, when an official from the office saw the post on TMZ.

But we're told what really made authorities suspicious ... the rehab doctor told the Coroner Kelly died from an embolism.  Our sources say the Coroner scoffed at the doctor's conclusion, because there's no way to know if someone died of an embolism without performing an autopsy.   In other words, you can't tell by looking at a dead body.

Our sources say the doctor at the facility told the Coroner Kelly was taking detox drugs, but the toxicology report isn't in so it's unclear if the drugs played a part in her death.

As for the embolism -- the Coroner still has not made a determination.  But they ARE suspicious.  And, we're told, the Sheriff has issued a security hold on the case, meaning no information can be released while the case is being investigated.

Rehab Doc was trying to divert blame. Had to protect the rehab. They are a money maker and closing for any length of time loses big bucks.
Saw one newbie in rehab get double meds one night while he was detoxing, junkie that he was didn't say anything.

Rehab at home people. You can take herbs or a hair of the dog to see you through. You can have someone to bring you food and wipe your forehead or whatever you need. In rehab you are like a prisoner. If they screw up, you are through.


I think the psychological dependence is the hardest thing to break. You do that through time and perseverance. You learn to cope with your issues without turning to medication to fade them away.


She probably had bad boyfriend issues. Maybe she drank to cope with the kind of men she was with. If she would have stopped the drinking, maybe she would have saw clear to removing their influence.


Alcohol is a depressant. People usually like to drink when they have internalized anger and anxiety. It helps to take the edge off but sometimes you need to feel that edge to solve your problems. You need to get angry around bad men who mistreat you so you can free yourself from them.

In the photo at the top she looks a bit like Jeri Ryan. It's too bad she couldn't keep clean; she could have had a great/long career.

I'm sure all the crack doctors who post on everything physical and mental will weigh in with their "expert" opinions.
