Anne Heche was an actress known for her roles in a variety of genres in film, television, and theater. She received numerous accolades, including a National Board of Review Award and multiple Emmy Awards. Heche's professional acting career began on the soap opera Another World (1987–1991) portraying the twins Vicky Hudson and Marley Love, for which she received a Daytime Emmy Award in 1991. She made her film debut in a supporting role in O Pioneers!, a 1992 American made-for-television drama film based on the 1913 novel by Willa Cather. Heche's acting profile rose during the 1990s, gaining particular attention for her co-starring role in the independent film Walking and Talking (1996) and for her standout supporting role in the crime drama Donnie Brasco (1997). Further high-profile roles followed in 1997, including Volcano, I Know What You Did Last Summer and Wag the Dog. In 1998, Heche further rose to prominence with her leading role in the romantic comedy Six Days, Seven Nights opposite Harrison Ford. Also in 1998, she starred in Gus Van Sant's shot-for-shot remake of Psycho. Heche's personal life often upstaged her acting career. From 1997 to 2000, she was in a high-profile relationship with comedian Ellen DeGeneres. Immediately following her split with DeGeneres in 2000, she had a highly publicized psychotic breakdown.

The Day of the Crash

On the morning of the accident, the long-troubled actress was allegedly caught in a series of wild incidents in the moments after leaving Glass Hair and crashing into a house. Police confirmed that she is being investigated for hitting another car and then driving off. Anne Heche was also filmed speeding away from someone telling her to get out of her car when she hit a garage door — as well as almost hitting a pedestrian. Doorbell cameras then caught the sound of her roaring through quiet residential streets at an estimated 70 MPH — before slamming into the house, sparking a blaze that 59 firefighters took more than an hour to tackle.

Weeks later the Los Angeles County Medical Examiner-Coroner report indicated there were no active drugs found in actress Anne Heche’s system at the time of her car crash.

So if there were no drugs or alcohol in her system and she had multiple incidents before the fatal crash – what the hell was going on?
