Death results for Debbie Reynolds and Carrie Fisher reveal that the mother/daughter pair died of stroke and heart attack respectively, but some questions remain unanswered.

Carrie Fisher’s death certificate was released on Friday, but it didn’t provide a full explanation as to what caused the Hollywood actress’ death last month, according to ET Online.

In the death certificate obtained by ET, Fisher’s cause of death is listed as “cardiac arrest/deferred.” While this shows that the actress suffered a massive heart attack, there are still more tests that need to be done to determine why she went into cardiac arrest.

The “Star Wars” actress died two days after Christmas at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center, just days after she went into cardiac arrest while on a flight from London to Los Angeles on Dec. 22.

According to USA Today, witnesses on the plane said Fisher had stopped breathing for more than 10 minutes.

Debbie Reynolds, Fisher’s mother, died of a stroke at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, one day after her daughter died.

ET obtained Reynolds’ death certificate as well.

The certificate confirmed the death of the “Singin’ in the Rain” star, citing the cause of death as “an intracerebral hemorrhage and hyperextension after suffering from high blood pressure for years,” ET noted.

Reynolds’ case is different from her daughter’s because of her recent history of small strokes, USA Today noted.

As for Fisher, it could be awhile before additional test results are available, considering toxicology tests usually take several weeks to complete, USA Today noted.

Fisher was 60 and her mother was 84.

The two were mourned on Thursday in a joint memorial service, and a joint funeral was held Friday in Hollywood Hills.

Relatives are also planning a public memorial for Reynolds and her daughter.

Both stars were celebrated at the Golden Globes on Sunday.
