Oprah Winfrey's worst fears have been realised - her half-sister died of
from a drug overdose.
PATRICIA LLOYD, 43, was found dead in her apartment in New Berlin,
Wisconsin, in February (03), and now coroners have released the truth about her
drug-induced death. Lloyd struggled with a cocaine addiction for years,
prompting Oprah to help
her pay for counselling.
Forensics expert DR ROBERT H GOLDBERG says, "The coroner found that Ms
Lloyd died of an accidental overdose of oxycodone - and extremely addictive
drug that gives the patient a euphoric, heroin-like high." 24/04/2003 02:05
