NEW YORK—The Los Angeles Police Department has ended its investigation into Anne Heche’s car accident, when the actress crashed into a Los Angeles home on Aug. 5.
Heche is brain dead and on life support, pending evaluation for organ donation.
“As of today, there will be no further investigative efforts made in this case,” the department announced Friday. “Any information or records that have been requested prior to this turn of events will still be collected as they arrive as a matter of formalities and included in the overall case. When a person suspected of a crime expires, we do not present for filing consideration.”
Detectives looking into the crash had said narcotics were found in a blood sample taken from Heche, 53. She has been hospitalized at a Los Angeles burn center.
