"Standard toxicology tests were performed and the results are pending however no illegal narcotics were found at the residence," the statement added.

As Radar reported, Moran who was remembered for her role in Joanie Loves Chachi, was found dead on April 22 in a southern Indiana neighborhood.

The dispatcher records said they "received a 911 call about an unresponsive female. Upon arrival of first responders, it was determined that Erin Moran Fleischmann was deceased.

Meanwhile, according to Page Six, the Happy Days actress refused help from fellow former child stars as her life spiraled out of control.

"I am proud of our efforts over the years to help Erin Moran, whose troubles were many and complex," Paul Petersen, the head of child-actor advocacy group A Minor Consideration, said in a Facebook post. "At least a half-dozen 'formers' were actively reaching out to Erin in the last week of her life."

"Erin had friends and she knew it. Abandonment was not the issue. The perversity of human frailty is at the root of this loss, not failure," Petersen continued. "We did our best with the resources available to us, but it was a very dark room. Some don't find the light switch in time."
