The medical examiner found "high levels of ketamine" in Matthew's body.

People close to the case described the woman’s involvement as “significant progress” in the unfolding probe into Perry’s overdose death last year.

But the woman has told investigators she would never do anything to hurt Perry who, according to her, was someone “she considered a friend.”

“She is adamant she had nothing to do with Matthew’s death,” a source said.

After the detectives executed the warrant, the woman voluntarily answered questions before retaining top Hollywood criminal defense lawyers.

“She is adamant she had nothing to do with Matthew’s death."
