RadarOnline.com has the latest developments in the suicide of Jim Carrey’s on-again, off-again girlfriend Cathriona White, including memorials and details from investigators.
Officials Reveal New Details
The death of White — a makeup artist from County Tipperary, Ireland — “was reported as a possible suicide,” the Los Angeles County Coroner’s Office Assistant Chief Ed Winter told the NY Daily News. Winter said that a note was found at the Sherman Oaks, Calif. home she was found at. Her autopsy will be conducted Wednesday, with results coming in a few weeks with toxicology testing results due, Winter said. Carrey Tuesday called White, 30, a “kind and delicate Irish flower, too sensitive for this soil” as news broke of her passing. The Cable Guy star initially started dating White three years ago, and the two had rekindled their romance this May before a recent breakup. “My heart goes out to her family and friends and to everyone who loved and cared about her,” Carrey, 53, said. “We have all been hit with a lightning bolt.”

Zelda Williams Reacts
Zelda Williams, still reeling from the death of her father Robin 13 months ago, took to Twitter in the wake of White’s death in hopes to send her condolences and pass on information about suicide prevention. The 26-year-old tweeted that she was “heartbroken to continue to watch sweet, kind souls be consumed by darkness. May it never hurt less, so we never grow numb to the loss.”
Zelda, who has publicly mourned her late father, then tweeted a link to Pieta House, an Ireland-based suicide prevention organization. “In honor of @littleirishcat, please check out http://www.pieta.ie. They do great work in her wonderful home country. RIP Cat.”
A number of White’s friends and acquaintances reacted publicly, still reeling from the shocking news of the suicide Tuesday. “It’s a bad dream, a bad dream,” Daphne del Rosario told the UK Sun. A gardner at the Sherman Oaks, Calif. complex White lived at, Frank Nakama, said that the late beauty had “seemed paranoid” in the months leading to her death, and that she “had installed security cameras all over the property.” He continued, “The last time I saw her was on Friday; I wanted to use the ladder so she opened the garage for me, but then closed the door very quickly, almost before I had left the garage,” he recalled.

Suicide is a shocking move, but I hope you find release, my beautiful Irish muffin 💔 Feels weird to say this here but I'll remember you this way, with your girl power posse
