The decision comes a little over a week after Heche was involved in a horrific car accident in Los Angeles. The actress first crashed her blue Mini Cooper into an apartment garage.

Many people approached the car and tried to get Heche to exit the vehicle. She did not listen to the pleas and sped off away from the scene.

Law enforcement believed Heche had been under the influence of alcohol or drugs at the time of the crash. Prior to her death, they obtained a search warrant for Heche's blood.

The test results showed Heche did not have liquor in her system but did have cocaine.

Her family said in a statement, "Anne had a huge heart and touched everyone she met with her generous spirit. More than her extraordinary talent, she saw spreading kindness and joy as her life’s work –especially moving the needle for acceptance of who you love. She will be remembered for her courageous honesty and dearly missed for her light."

Heche leaves behind two children Atlas and Homer.
