Actress Anne Heche, who played several roles, including “I Know what You Did last Summer” and “The Legend of Korra,” has been officially declared dead after a major car accident.
A representative for Heche confirmed that while Heche is still on life support, she currently has no brain function, meaning she falls under the definition of death under California law. This is reported by The Guardian and TMZ.
The actress has been on life support since August 5 after a high-speed accident, as a result of which she received severe burns and fell into a coma. Preliminary tests confirmed the presence of drugs in her body. On August 11, her representative said that she would not survive.
