The official cause of death has been revealed for Dr. Amie Harwick, Drew Carey’s ex-fiancee, and that is blunt force injuries of the head and torso.
According to the Los Angeles County Department of Medical Examiner-Coroner’s office, the Hollywood therapist’s death was classified as a “homicide,” with the fatal injuries occurring when she fell from the third-floor balcony after an altercation. There was also “evidence of manual strangulation,” per Deadline in a report published Tuesday.
