Drew Barrymore's half sister found dead inside her car in San Diego

Originally posted on Hollywood Life

Drew's half-sister, Jessica Barrymore, was found dead, July 29, in San Diego, Calif., and she was only 48-years-old.

Drew Barrymore, 39, must be devastated. Drew and her half-sister, Jessica Barrymore, share the same father, actor, John Drew Barrymore. Jessica parked her car in a stranger's driveway in San Diego, Calif., a little after midnight on July 29, and was found unresponsive in her car at 6 a.m. The woman who found Jessica, claims that a SoBe energy drink and "dozens of white pills" were found inside her car.

An onlooker, Oscar Sandoval, told KGTV ABC 10: "Her car was parked right here last night around midnight. I thought she was sleeping or waiting for someone."

This horrible news comes at a time where Drew was in the midst of celebrating life. Specifically, Drew's daughter Frankie, who was born, April 22.

Drew shared the first photo of Frankie, June 12, and it was adorable. Shortly before she gave birth, Drew told People, "I'm feeling very, very happy. Happy and healthy - mentally and physically," she said. "When I found out I was overjoyed. It always feels so surreal, it's incredible. [I'm feeling] incredible, that 'Here we go again' feeling. And blessed. Blessed!"

We hope that Drew and her family are okay during this difficult time. HollywoodLifers, we will keep you posted as more information comes out.

This article sounds like it was written by a teenager who needs a course in writing.
Shame AOL

Ok so let me get this straight. The story is about her half sister yet AOL you post numerous dated pics of Drew? Classy AOL. Classy. You need to get your heads out of your asses and moderate your writers or whoever is in charge. This is ridiculous.

The "sensationalism" in this articles is ridiculous. It's like a real bait and switch ... grocery store and retail tactics to get you in the store.

and it is Drew Barrymore who gets all the publicity when it is the half sister who died. Poor Drew, so worthy of our idol worship, but of course, that is the purpose of the media, to promote idol worship.

This article was definitely written to bring the reader into reading about Drew. This is NOT about Drew.
Where is her sister's bio and photo?
Please--leave Drew and her lovely family out of your sensationalistic reports.

Take white pills by the dozens and you will die most times. Don't guess they would really have to be white? Now playing with fire? Did grab the soidering iron by the wrong end one time, the mind takes a second to register that intense heat then it says " Let go you idiot". Neat blisters afterwards.
