Conaway was taken off life support on May 27th and died at just 60.

Los Angeles County coroner Craig Harvey said a toxicology test was not conducted because the troubled star had been hospitalized for weeks prior to his death, so his blood would have come back clean.

However he said when Conaway entered the hospital opiates and other drugs were in his system.

Conaway appeared on Celebrity Rehab and worked with Dr. Drew Pinsky who said the actor “was a terribly complex case with chronic pain, opiate addiction and severe childhood trauma.”
