LOS ANGELES (AP) — The Latest on the deaths of Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds (all times local):

9 a.m.

Debbie Reynolds’ death certificate confirms that the actress died of a stroke.

The Los Angeles County death certificate was obtained Tuesday by The Associated Press.

Under cause of death it says “intracerebral hemorrhage,” a type of stroke caused by bleeding in the brain. The certificate lists high blood pressure as an underlying cause.

Reynolds died at age 84 on Dec. 28 at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, the certificate says.

It lists Reynolds’ son Todd Fisher as the notifying party, and gives Reynolds’ occupation as “actress.”

Her daughter, Carrie Fisher, had died a day earlier. Fisher’s death certificate lists the cause as “cardiac arrest.”

Fisher, star of the “Star Wars” saga, and Reynolds, the “Singin’ in the Rain” actress, had a joint funeral last week.
